Teacher Dalia Sofronie

All about mold making and slip casting: 36-hour workshop, divided into 6 sessions of 6 hours each.

 

  • This mold making and slip casting workshop contemplates the plaster as a very important tool in the work of each ceramisist.
  • You will make: multi-parts molds, press stamps, roller stamp molds and press molds.
  • You will work with white and colored slips and you will know what kind of interventions you can do in the pieces once removed from the plaster molds.

This mold making and slip casting workshop will be very useful for developing your work as a ceramisist. You will be surprised by the infinite possibilities that the use of plaster adds to your projects.

 

And if, once this course is over, you want to learn more from us, we recommend you our intensive hand building and ceramic decoration workshop or our ongoing wheel throwing course.

How are we going to work:

  • On top of a previously chosen symmetric object you will build a plaster mold of a single block. You will split this mold in the middle, as a result obtaining a two-part mold, with the separation lines barely visible
  • You will make a three-part mold from a slightly more complex prototype
  • Learn to make press stamps
  • Build press molds
  • Construct a roller stam mold
  • You will work with slips: earthenware and porcelain, white and colored slip castings
  • Learn to make interventions in the pieces obtained from the molds: ads on, perforations, alterations, reserves etc

Note that:

  • Previous experience with ceramics desirable
  • Classes are comprised of a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 people to ensure a personalized attention
  • We put at your disposal all the materials and tools that your creative process may need, this also includes work clothes
  • If requested, we also offer the course as an individual class (ask for price and availability)
  • If, at the end of this course you decide for one of our continuous courses or for the open studio modality, you won’t have to pay the enrollment fee.
