Glass Casting
January 13 to 16

Friday, January 13 to Monday, January 16, 2017
Instructors: Jody Danner Walker and Brad Walker

A comprehensive exploration of methods for casting glass, from simple open faced castings to more elaborate techniques such as lost wax casting and casting with rubber molds.

Skates

In this fast paced 4 day workshop we’ll approach glass casting from several angles, including:

  • Open faced, or bas relief casting
  • Lost wax casting, from start to finish
  • Pate de verre, using a “paste of glass” in a mold
  • Mold making with clay and plaster, as well as using rubber molds
  • Coldworking techniques for casting.

This is a hands-on class in which students will learn to use existing molds or create their own molds from clay and plaster.  Focus will be on creating a number of smaller pieces that showcase each technique.  Experience with basic kiln processes is helpful, but not required.

 

All levels, four days         Price: $595
10:00 to 4:30 first three days, 10:00 to 3:00 last day
