Plaster Workshop March 7, 2009

Plaster Mold Making Workshop
March 7, 2009
One day, hands on class on basic mold making.
Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
$60.00 (includes plaster)

Bring about 5 pounds of clay, your tools ( e.g. detailing tools, wire tool, loop tool, rib, etc.), leather gloves, a dust mask (if you have one) and 2 or 3 very simple objects, approximately 4” x 4” x 4” or the size of an apple. From those we will choose one object that we will make a small two piece press mold from. Also, bring an apple or a pear so that if your objects have too many undercuts and are too difficult to cast, we can just make a mold of the apple or the pear. The goal is to learn the mold making and press molding process so when you return home you can do it yourself!

A lunch, of soup and homemade bread is included.

Yup, I get pretty sad with the state of art stuff in my general area. However, a short trip up the road there is plenty. They need to build a Penland in Atlanta. Midtown. haha
