Durable Casting Mold Making Workshop

This workshop is limited to SIX people.

This workshop is intended for professional artists who are producing cast work in volume.  This process will teach you how to make identical copies of casting molds to bypass the need for silica/plaster molds.  Ceramic molds are reuseable and will lower production costs and speed up your casting process. 

Please bring ONE piece of artwork to make molds of.  Artwork must be flat backed with no undercuts (overhangs).  Maximum artwork size is 14″ x 14″ x 3″h.  These molds are open face and intended for wall mount or paperweight style artworks.  If you are unsure if your artwork will work for this workshop, please contact me before registering!
