Mold-making (is) For Everyone!
This 3-day hands-on workshop will provide an in-depth look into various techniques used in the production of plaster molds.
We’ll begin with the basics and graduate to applications suitable for students at any level.
Demonstrations include proper mixing and measuring, introduction to tools, casting plaster on and off of the potter’s wheel, hand-forming wet plaster, cutting and reassembling molds, hand lapping, approaches for simple and complex forms, slip-casting, and wet sanding bisque ware.
During the workshop, Peter will construct multiple projects, and work with students to produce molds of their own.
Additionally, Peter will bring a complex system to show and discuss concepts and problem-solving approaches.
(Only 15 spaces available, register early as this will sell out for sure!)
