Mold Making: Ceramics And Mixed-Media
August 2, 2020 – August 8, 2020
Paul Andrew Wandless
This workshop will introduce students to basic mold making, modeling and casting. The focus is on making small molds and sprigs using a variety of approaches. During class participants will create plaster molds, bisque molds and rubber latex molds for use with clay. You will use silicone rubber molds to cast non-clay materials and positives will be created with clay, plasticine, chipboard and found objects appropriate for the different mold making materials. Students will also experiment pulling forms from the molds with casting slip, clay, white plastic, wax, cement, paper pulp and pewter. Ceramists, sculptors, 3D Design instructors and K-12 teachers can benefit from participation. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
