moldmaking

Unlike other skills, sculpture has an extensive scope of things you need to learn about if you want to make the most of your work. Sculpting is one part of it, but there is more.

Learning how to preserve and enhance your work by moulding and casting in a durable material is essential. However, to get that experience, you need to know about materials and techniques. This part is usually one of the student’s concerns and, simultaneously, an intriguing and exciting side of it.

These workshops and tutorials cover some of the leading materials used to mould and cast sculptures, providing you with the information you need to source yourself. For example, suppose you don’t know what resin to choose, what type of mould you should do, what materials are available and which is the best for your work, or how to finish your work. Then THis workshop can help you with all of that.

You will be moulding your work in our workshops, or if you work from home, you will get an overall idea of the most important things to know so you can apply it to your projects. Of course, you can always get in touch with the studio if you get stuck; we will be happy to help.
