About the Plaster & Cement Studio

In the plaster and mold-making studio, students have access to reusable retaining wall pieces (cottle boards) for constructing mold boxes, mixing containers, stir sticks, mold releases, and limited consumable materials such as plaster. Most materials must be purchased by students unless enrolled in a casting class.

A small vac-u-forming machine is available for molding plastic and food-safe materials.

Limited storage for in-progress molds is available for enrolled Sculpture students.
