For many artists, making a living from their art often means being able to
produce more affordable editions of their work...
   for painters, it's the print..
   for sculptors and 3D artists, it's the limited edition reproduction.

This workshop will give participants a comprehensive introduction to mold
making, casting and the reproduction of 3D objects in a variety of different
mediums.

John van der Kolk trained as a patternmaker/ industrial designer and has been a practicing sculptor for more than 25 years.

In the 3 days

we will work with materials and techniques for making molds and
their applications.

we will explore many different objects and the methods of reproducing them, from found objects, things in nature,hands and faces and pieces you will make during the workshop.

you will also be introduced to many different mediums to cast in, form specialised plasters and patternstone, resins, polymer ceramics, cold cast metals and urethanes.

Be ready for a fun and informative time as John attempts to squeeze in 20 years
of experience into 3 days.
