Make It: Molding and Casting

This workshop gets two thumbs up, literally! Learn about the art of molding and casting while you make exact replicas of your most important digit, your thumb. Then turn those plaster thumbs into thumb thumbtacks, and experiment with hot glue casting as well. Recommended for ages 6 and older. $3 per adult/child pair, plus NYSCI admission. (Members: $1 per adult/child pair.)
