Workshops Marfa is having a Plaster Casting and Mold Making Workshop!
In this in-depth class, students will learn how to mold and cast the human form (faces, torsos, hands, feet). We'll work with alginates and plaster to create detailed molds and will then cast plaster for the finished work. Students will learn the fundamentals of mixing plaster, how to apply it, how to make a good cast, etc. This workshop is great for creating mementos of loved ones (pregnancy casts, for instance).
This is a great class for all skill levels. Please be advised that we will make a mess during this process, so please wear work/casual clothing.
