This course will explore mold making and casting as is has been applied to art, design and architecture throughout history. We will be exploring various methods and materials used in the mold making industry, including but not limited to metal casting, rubber molds and polymer based applications as well as site casting.

Students will not only have the chance to explore traditional methods and materials, but will be encouraged to explore the techniques taught in this course to produce experimental molds and casts. Instead of this course focusing solely on mold making as a means to duplicate and preserve an original, we would like students to consider this process as a way of altering and ultimately developing completely new forms.
