This fast-paced class will explore the dynamic possibilities of mimicry with an open-face kiln cast mold. This technique is perfect for capturing the texture of everyday objects, both as impressions in clay and as direct transfers to the mold material. A variety of samples, materials, and textures will be available in the studio, but students are encouraged to bring their own simple items to play with. Come with an open mind to learn the basics of this process and discover the one-of-a-kind results only possible with kilncasting! No experience necessary.
This class will be conducted in a two-part format. The first session on Saturday, will cover the basics of making your mold and loading it into the kiln. The shorter second session on Thursday evening will cover how to safely remove your piece from the kiln, as well as basic coldworking techniques to finish your piece.
This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration.
