CLAY SUMMER SESSION 3
JUNE 18–30, 2023
Prototype Development and Mold Making
This workshop will cover methods of working with plaster to create models and molds. Students will design objects on paper and learn various methods for creating 3D versions using plaster, clay, or wood. Students will then be guided through the process of making one-piece or multiple-piece molds, which will be used to make slip cast objects. Demonstrations will cover various approaches to prototyping, mold making, and the slip casting process. We’ll emphasize developing original forms rather than working with found objects. Porcelain slip; electric firing. All levels. Lower clay studio.
