The workshop is FREE but participants must pay for their 4 nights of accommodation (including 3 meals/day) at St. Peter’s, unless they have arranged accommodations elsewhere.

This workshop presents an excellent opportunity to learn silicone mold making with an acrylic mother mold. Completed molds will be cast in resin or hydrostone, or a combination of both to accommodate the sculpture you plan to create. Casting materials, tools, and instruction 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. For more information about the artist, visit heatherbenning.ca.
