This workshop will cover the basics of mixing plaster and making hump/slump molds from bowls, dishes, and other items, as well as the basics of putting those molds to use in making functional ware from slabs. Please note, this is not a slipcasting workshop.
We will provide plaster and materials.
Please bring a dish that you'd like to create a mold of. Ideal dishes are plastic or metal and should NOT be a precious item as the original may get damaged in the process. Pieces made of wood, or with undercuts, will not make ideal molds.
Ideal pieces to make plates or other items should have higher walls so that you have extra height to work with.
Workshop will begin at 11am at our Chicago studio and finish up around 1pm.
