Glass Casting and Pate de Verre

Thursday, March 22 to Sunday, March 25, 2018
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.

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
