MOLD RELIEF WORKSHOP
instructor: Ianna Frisby
CLASSES MARCH-MAY HAVE BEEN POSTPONED TO TBA DATES DUE TO PREVENTIVE MEASURES TO CONTAIN THE SPREAD OF COVID-19. PLEASE CHECK BACK ON APRIL 2ND FOR UPDATES.
This class is an introduction to ceramic mold-making by creating an open face one-part mold. Students will begin by creating their own unique design on a clay slab while learning sculptural methods used to create a 6” x 6” tile in relief. During the following class, students will learn the basics of plaster mixing and setting up and casting a 1-part plaster mold using their original clay tile. The last class will provide an opportunity for the students to use the plaster molds they made to press clay into thus replicating their original design and creating a series of four tiles.
