Mug Mold Making Workshop
Mug Mold Making Workshop
with Angela Drew
Making molds can be a helpful way to replicate an object or a piece one has previously made.
In this workshop students will create a mug and handle shape and learn to replicate it by making molds. We will make a one-part mold for the mug shape and a two-part mold for the handle. Casting will be the last step using casting slip.
This is a three day workshop during the first weekend of March. Includes Friday evening and Saturday afternoon with an optional Sunday evening meeting. You may view the class Itinerary below
