About this Event
In this class you will learn how to make a ceramic work piece using slip clay and plaster molds.
Part 1 Slip casting basics- You will be given a tour of the ceramics work space and learn where the slip clay and molds are kept, and be given a brief overview of the shelving and firing process. You will learn the process of preparing a mold for slip-casting, banding the mold, pouring the slip, identifying the appropriate amount of time to allow the slip to set up and dry.
Part 2- You will learn how to check for appropriate dryness of the clay, unmold the ceramic piece, how to trim and clean up seam lines, how to clean and care for the molds, and set the piece out to dry for bisque firing.
Note- there will be a 2 hour break in between classes part 1 and 2 to allow for dry time. An additional 103 class will be available to learn how to glaze your work piece.
