Make It: Molding and Casting

 

Loading Events

You’ll give this workshop two thumbs up, literally! Learn about the art of molding and casting and experiment with hot glue casting while you make exact replicas of your own thumb, then turn those plaster thumbs into thumb tacks.

This 60-minute workshop is recommended for ages 6 and older.

Allergy warning: This program uses alginate, an algae based molding compound. If you have a shellfish allergy, this may cause an allergic reaction. Please let the facilitators know if you have an allergy.
