Mould Making Classes

Introduction to Mould Making for Ceramics

This class is intended to provide an introduction to the technique of mould making for ceramics and will focus on the methods and construction of a one-part mould.

For this 4-week session participants will work on a small mould or a series of small moulds.  Please be aware that mould making is a slow and time-consuming process and this class is intended to teach the method of constructing a mould rather than producing ceramic work from these moulds.
