This workshop is suitable for mold making beginners and to students needing a refresher in moldmaking techniques. In this intensive 2-day workshop, students will have the chance to learn and create basic molds out of plaster that can be used for slip casting or press molds. The first day will include a detailed step-by-step demonstration on creating single and basic multiple part molds out of plaster, with time for students to begin working on their own molds. Students with some familiarity with mold making may choose to work on more complex multiple part molds.

Enrolled students will be provided a list of suggested tools, supplies, and items to bring to class. Enrollment is limited to 15 students
