Learn the basics of life casting and lost wax kilncasting while you create a glass replica of your hand.

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



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. Whether you are new to kilncasting, would like to hone your skills, or are interested in experimenting with life casting, all experience levels are welcome.

*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.
