Slip Casting with David Eichelberger
October 8 - October 14
This One Week Residential Workshop is designed to introduce students to the process of slip casting and plaster mold making while keeping the information straightforward and easy to understand. Casting has gained popularity in recent years and is a valuable tool to have in your kit. During the course of the week, students will work through the process, beginning with an object and ending with a porcelain replica of the original. Along the way, variations will be discussed and demonstrated to expand the possibilities of this forming technique.
Any students interested in working with clay, from hobbyists to studio practitioners to industrial designers, can gain insight from this class.
A workshop at the Marlboro Studio School provides students with an immersive, uninterrupted learning experience. During the course of a workshop, participants have the opportunity to investigate their passion for long stretches of time in the studios, and to connect with like-minded classmates who have also dedicated their time to the same pursuit.
Workshop classes are a chance to focus without the distractions of daily life, and to tap into the creative endeavors that sustain us all. The Marlboro Studio School welcomes students to stay on campus for the duration of their stay, and area residents are also invited to participate as commuting Day Students.
