Workshops: Introductory to Mold Making for Sculptors

This summer we have a great line up of workshops for artists and sculptors! On August 4th and 5th we are offering a mold making workshop for sculptors with George McMonigle. “Did you ever want to make a mold of one of your sculptures or wonder how they were made?” Maybe you had mold making back in school and wondered what has changed! If so, this workshop is a perfect place to start. You will be making a silicon mold of a small (3′ to 4′) very simple sculpture. A demonstration will be given explaining modern mold making materials and techniques. Time will be given to create a small sculpture. George will then walk you through the step-by-step process of dividing your piece with shims, pouring layers of silicon and making a mother mold and a plaster cast of your work. In mold making “size matters.” To get the most out of this workshop and an understanding of the process, we will only be molding a small simple sculpture. This same process can easily be scaled up for much larger and more complex sculptures in your own studios. More information and registration...
