Adding plaster to your studio practice will open new possibilities for form and function. This workshop will focus on mold making for both slip casting and press molding techniques for ceramics. Nagelberg will help you jump this hurdle by demonstrating how to measure, mix and pour plaster. You will learn the basics of mold making but more importantly, you will learn how to design for this process. Seth will focus on quick modeling techniques in clay and plaster. Techniques include- using the potter’s wheel to make models, casting plaster solids using foam-core and using ready-mades. We will make single and multi-part molds and mix casting slip. You will leave with molds in hand and an understanding of the slip casting process.
Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day
Lunch is included for all participants
