Molds are a useful tool for duplicating the same ceramic pieces again and again. Or perhaps it is a non-ceramic object you want to translate into clay. Learn how to make a press mold and slip-cast mold to add to your studio practice. Feel free to bring any object(s) you wish to make a mold of during the class. All materials and tools included. No experience necessary. Participants will leave the workshop with at least one mold.
