Event Details

Cast/Molded tree branch

Description:

Mold-Making and Casting is a process that has been used by artists and industry for hundreds of years to replicate objects from life or to transform an object into a different material. In this four-week exploration, students will learn how to make one part and multipart molds to replicate everyday objects, their own sculpture, or even their body parts. Some of the materials we will be experimenting with in the class include rubber, plastic, foam, wax, alginate, and plaster. Students should be ready to get their hands dirty trying all the techniques and processes they are shown!

Class Goals:

The goal of the class is for students to come away with a few new castings of their own design and armed with the knowledge required to continue doing mold-making and casting on their own.

Prerequisites:

None.

Materials:

All tools and materials will be provided by the instructor. Materials fee is $75 per student and is payable to the instructor on the first day of class.
