Always wanted to make your own custom objects out of silicone, urethane rubber, urethane plastic, wax, or a variety of other materials?
Come to the Intro to Casting workshop on Tuesday, July 3, 7-9:30 PM.
Casting is a fabrication method that allows you to replicate existing object as well as create completely new ones from digital designs. You can create toys, mechanical parts, and project prototypes of varying complexity and detail.
The workshop will have two parts to it. In the first half, you will learn how to make a silicone mold from an existing object. You will be able to pick up the cured mold the next day after the workshop. The second half of the workshop will focus on casting an object, which you will be able to take home with you at the end of the workshop. In the process you will learn casting techniques as well as tips and tricks for various casting challenges.
The cost of the workshop ($50) includes one silicone mold and one urethane plastic object. Please bring a small (2”x2”x2”) non-latex rubber based object with at least one flat side for the mold-making exercise. To sign up, give us a call (206 357 9406) or come down to the Metrix Create: Space shop on Broadway.
