Other Things: Scavenging, Sculpting, Mold-Making & Casting with Heather Benning

Part of our 2019 Travelling Mentor series, this workshop is intended to support artists living and working in rural Saskatchewan who have limited access to professional development opportunities. Rural artists will be given preference, especially those who've been consulting with Heather through the program. Artists living in urban centres are welcome to express their interest in participating and will be added to a waitlist. If spots remain after the registration deadline of May 31st, the program will open to urban artists on the waitlist.

******************************************************************

This workshop presents an excellent opportunity to learn silicone mold making with an acrylic mother mold from experienced artist, Heather Benning. Completed molds will be cast in resin or hydrostone, or a combination of both to accommodate the sculpture you plan to create. Casting materials and tools will be supplied free of charge. No previous experience necessary.

This five-day session is designed to help you think critically and creatively, while learning the physical foundations of sculpture and the exciting process of mold making. We will concentrate on: concept, form, shape, mass, volume, positive and negative space, texture and surface.

******************************************************************

This workshop is FREE, including all materials and tools!

Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation expenses. Rooms are available at St. Peter's College for all 4 nights of the workshop (July 25, 26, 27, 28) at a total of $105.50/night, including 3 meals/day. Meals are not vegetarian/vegan. No outside food is allowed but people with special dietary needs can bring their own food (be advised that kitchenettes have only a fridge and a microwave). Restaurants are accessible in nearby Muenster. Accommodations at St. Peter's must be confirmed and paid for by May 31st, which is also the registration deadline. After that date, no refunds are possible.

To register, email programs.sask@carfac.ca
Spots are limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis, with preference to rural artists as described above.
