Casting Glass: From Positive To Negative and Back

June 17, 2018 – June 23, 2018

Jean Fernandes

In this workshop students explore methods for translating ideas into cast glass objects through the kiln casting processes. Lectures and demonstrations cover strategies for mold making, mold recipes, kiln set-up, annealing schedules and finishing work in the cold shop. Students will leave class with valuable ideas and information, finished cast objects, and a thorough understanding of the positive and negative relationship between the model and the mold. Participants should bring several sketches and found objects for inspiration and idea development. Be prepared to have fun and work hard. Open to all skill levels.
