Transform your work with both 2D and 3D elements!! Beginner and Up are welcomed!
Bring your favorite found objects and you’ll learn to make reusable molds that capture intricate detail, cast them in a lightweight maaterial and ultimately patina and utilize your creations in a variety of ways as both jewelry and in assemblage or any combination! Save your precious original found objects, and use the molds to make many casts for both assemblage art and jewelry too!
We will also provide a great collection of found objects to make your own molds to take home!

Assemblage of objects-both cast and collected as well as an assortment of papers and images will result in an artwork that goes from two dimensional to three dimensional. We will use small boxes, wood panels, containers and tins to house our assembled gems.

Note: These are press molds, meaning that the resulting form will be flat on the back. Ideal objects to cast include items that are firm, less than 3" long or wide and have a stable, non-porous surface. For example, it will be easier to cast a shell or acorn than a twig covered with flaking bark. And, it will be probably be easier to cast a twig than a leaf or bit of moss. Due to possible copyright infringement, we recommend against reproducing commercially cast items.

Materials provided include: 1/3 lb silicone mold-making material and quick-cast resin (Enough mold-making material is included in the class for you to make molds of 3-5 objects that average 2” square in size – and you’ll have access to enough casting material to make multiple casts from each mold), a variety of metal-reactive paints, jewelry findings for two necklaces, wood panel and or small boxes and tins to use in creating an assemblage ! We will also have tons of collage papers and found objects for you to play with as well as glues and brushes. Bring some of your favorite papers, ideas, and objects!

Class held in Studio #224 in our building, Riverview Station, at the all new Asheville Print Studio.. Directions will be provided in your welcome letter..
