About the Workshop
Elastic and flexible, silicone makes it possible to make molds that are resistant and faithful to the original object, making it possible to reproduce complex shapes with “prisons” in a simpler way.
At this level, students will delve into the subject of silicone mold making: using silicones on a vertical surface is just one of the challenges we will work on. Basic knowledge of silicone mold making is required.
Taught by Katie Lagast, a Belgian artist who has lived in Lisbon since 2015, the 15-hour workshop will take place on May 19 (from 6 pm to 9 pm) and May 20, 27 (from 10 am to 6 pm).
