Plaster Mold

About the Workshop

Learn how to slip-cast and decorate using pre-made plaster molds. This is a great way to learn how to make multiples of ceramic objects quickly and easily.

About the Instructor

Amber graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a degree in 3D fine Arts. She specialized in ceramics, but her second love is fiber arts. Amber is manager of Duke Arts Annex, where you can see some of her cureent projects. She also works out of her home studio and with some local artists sharing resources. Amber primarily works in handbuilding for both her ceramic sculpture and functional ware, and she uses underglazes to color her pieces. For her fiber art, Amber works mostly in wool, felting and dyeing the material into sculptural, often mixed-media forms.

About DukeCreate

DukeCreate is a series of free, hands-on arts workshops designed to help Duke students, staff, and faculty develop a variety of creative skills. Workshops are open to all skill levels and backgrounds. Most take place in the Duke Arts Annex or the Rubenstein Arts Center and are typically held weeknights 6-8pm.

Workshops are free to all Duke students and staff, with priority given to students. Class size is limited. Students must sign up in advance. Online enrollment for Duke staff opens on the day of the workshop. Staff can also show up 10 minutes prior to a workshop in case a slot becomes available. Walk-ins will only be accommodated on a space-available basis.

DukeCreate is sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts (DukeArts) and University Center Activities and Events (UCAE).
