Mold Making Workshop

People have been creating and replicating tangible, three-dimensional objects centuries before the development of 3D printing technology by casting their idea through a process of mold-making and casting.

Young closes the circle by sharing knowledge of the terminology, principles, techniques of various methods of mold-making and casting including incorporating 3D printed objects impressed into the cuttlebone to make a mold. Materials for this hands-on session are included along with additional materials to continue exploring the process at home. For ages 13-17. Pre-registration and payment are required. Cost is $10 for Amazeum members and $17 for non-members.
