Plastic Molding*

Did you ever think of something cool you could make, but it needed a plastic or rubber part? Let make them! We will work together on projects that will teach you several ways to make molds and different plastics that you can use to make those objects. This is a highly hands-on course, and almost all of the time will be spent making things. Want to make copies of some small object? What about making molds for patterns in concrete or plaster? Have an old caster wheel that you cannot find a replacement for? Let's make one! We can even work with skin-safe materials to make molds of hands. Note that due to the wide range of materials costs, each student will be responsible for purchase of materials for their own projects. We will have some available for purchase at the first class and will order any special requests in time for class two when individual projects will start.
