Silicone Mould Making Workshop

Pouring silicone into the mould

Brenda Factor

SquarePeg Studio’s is responsive to the requests of students and those in the industry and we have had many requests to run a 2 day silicone mould course that focuses on jewellery. And so we are running a 2 Saturday workshop on making silicone moulds. Taught by Erin Keys, who as well as being a SquarePeg tenant, is a fabulous contemporary jeweller.

In this fun two day workshop  Erin will take students through all the steps involved in mould making for jewellery and small objects. Students will be introduced to the uses and possibilities of mould making, as well as tools and materials that can be used.

Students will have the opportunity to make several moulds using models we have, and can also bring along their own models for discussion with the tutor. Erin will demonstrate how to make a block mould and how to cut and release the models, and share tips and tricks from her experiences making moulds for her artworks.
