Used as a method of making sculpture and functional forms for centuries, casting can be complex and intimidating to beginners. More info...

In this one-day workshop, mixed-media artist and jeweler Arielle Brackette will break down the process, guiding students through the creation of multiple molds and casting forms in plaster, wax, soap and concrete. Using a two-part silicone putty, students will explore portable and approachable mold-making methods that can be applied beyond the studio during hikes or other excursions, and create at least four unique molds of simple shapes without undercuts. This workshop focuses on casting methods that can be used to create small sculptures, jewelry or other 3D forms. Sanding and other basic finishing techniques will be covered. Students will take home several unique, completed forms and the skills to continue experimenting with mold-making!
