Brazee welcomes artist and instructor Joanna Manousis to teach this 6-day comprehensive multi-part moldmaking workshop. Joanna will walk you through the complex process from wax model to multi-part silicone moldmaking, and finally to glass positive. Classes like this don't come around often, so don't miss your chance!


When an object is transformed into a wax state, you have the ability to alter its structure, duplicate its form, and conjoin it with contrasting elements to create unique assemblages. Taking advantage of the multi-part silicon mother mold process for creating detailed multiples in wax, we will re-appropriate readily identifiable objects into one-of-a-kind configurations in glass that probe the viewer to think and ask questions. A variety of applications for shaping and casting waxes will be introduced, along with an in-depth overview of the lost wax process for kiln casting. You will learn hand-built refractory mold construction and cold working techniques to aid visual access into the interior of your cast glass sculptures. Technical slide presentations and one-on-one conversation will enhance your artistic practice. 

Some glass working experience is preferred but not required; advanced students are also welcome.

Cancellation Policy: Please be sure you can attend class at time of registration. 24 hour notice required to keep payment as CREDIT to be used towards another class. All sales final, no refunds.
