Lost Wax Casting and Mold Making Techniques

June 14th - June 16th
Celeste Wilson |

This weekend class covers basic to advanced mold making techniques. Whether you’re looking to get into rubber molds for lost wax casting or you’re a total beginner to mold making, this course will help clarify these many-step processes and help you understand the minutiae of the craft of making molds. We’ll cover brush-on rubber molds, poured rubber molds, 2 part mother molds, wax working, and making positives from your rubber molds. Please note: we will not be casting with glass in this class; we will only be generating wax and plaster positives. This course could be considered a prerequisite for any glass casting class. 

This class meets Friday 6-9pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am-6pm

What to Expect: Clothing that you don’t mind getting messy and stained should be worn, aprons will also be available for studio use. Bring objects less than 6" in any direction that you would like to make a mold out of.  Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility: No experience required. Open to ages 14 and up.
