Basic and intermediate techniques for mold making and slip casting. Student will learn to make two or three-part plaster molds for slip casting from hand built forms or from found objects.
During the 6- week workshop, students will learn the essentials of constructing a functional (1 to 3 piece) plaster mold for slip casting. At the end of the 6 weeks, all students will have a piece ready for a bisque firing. Sculpture Space NYC will provide students with items suitable for mold-making. If students have a particular form in mind that they wish to recreate throughout this course, they must send several images of their form to to confirm that it's a practical object eligible for completion within the allotted time. If the model is not suitable for class, students will be given an appropriate form that will demonstrate the key elements of mold-making; those with specific/ intricate inquiries are welcome to consult with the instructor whom will provide required information to engage in  personal projects. Students are expected to comply with studio guidelines and maintain a clean work environment during every class.
