Product description

Date: June 22 - August 24 Day: Fridays Time: 6:30 - 9:30 pm Instructor: Evan Hauser Description: NCC’s 2017-2018 Anonymous Artist Fellow, Evan Hauser, is back for an encore class this summer, which will focus on the slip-casting process. Beginning with a form, students will learn the proper techniques of replication through molds, including how to make the initial clay bed, measuring and mixing plaster, and techniques for opening and cleaning new molds. After molds have been created, students will learn how slip is created from raw clay materials. Understanding the slip-making process allows for a better understanding of final outcomes. Students will also investigate and troubleshoot removing forms from the mold, post-casting clean up, and final alteration. This class is best for intermediate students.
