Beyond the Glass: Unconventional Mold Making
Sat, Apr 8, 2017, 10:00 AM – Sat, May 13, 2017, 1:00 PM EDT
A mold is a hollow container used to give shape to molten or hot liquid materials when they cool. Molds can be made off of everyday objects, the body, or built up from scratch. This workshop will explore the boundaries of not only mold making for kilncast glass, but exploring the potential for other mediums. Combining articles such as jello, chocolate, soap, ceramic and wax, students will be encouraged to create multiples and manipulate the objects to expand the possibilities of working in unconventional ways.
Moldmaking techniques to be covered will include plaster, silica, silicone and alginate. Show up with an open mind to play, and be challenged to construct something original.
