Class Times
Saturday-Sunday 10am-4pm, Saturday 10am-4pm

* Required Fields



In this workshop, students will learn the basics of life casting—a process of taking a mold of the human form and reproducing it as a sculptural object. In this case, each student will make a reusable rubber mold of one of their hands.* From that mold, we will produce a wax hand, learn some basic wax-working skills, build an investment mold, and perform a lost wax casting. The focus of this workshop will be familiarizing ourselves with rubber molds and investment molds as well as proper firing of kilncast objects and archival coldworking.

*Note: Your hand will be encased in a rubber mold for around 30-45 minutes as part of this course. If you are claustrophobic or are physically unable to perform that task, please call ahead so we can prepare a mold for you.

All experience levels welcome.
