Alginate is a material that many of us may have encountered at the dentist - it’s the stuff they use to make molds of your teeth! But did you know you can also use this body-safe material to cast and recreate things in glass? This four week workshop will explore how to use alginate for the lost wax kilncasting technique. By starting with an original object or body part (keeping things PG), we will go through the steps of making an alginate mold, creating a wax, making a mold, then casting the glass in the kiln. No experience required, come ready to explore this multi-step process!
This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration. Our top priority is keeping our community safe. At UrbanGlass, masks are still required for all ages 2 and older (we recommend a KN95 or KF94 mask). Temperature checks continue at the security desk when entering through the Rockwell entrance. We ask that if you were recently directly exposed to COVID-19 and are awaiting test results that you do not come to class, and we will work with you to find another class placement or refund you the class fee. Current policies are subject to change based on additional information, including the city's new alert levels page.
