Focus Information


Create a full outdoor chess set out of cement. Students learn molding and casting techniques in the shop to make the pieces. Then, when the course is over, take your set home to play with. Make the pieces in your image. Sculpt or 3D print designs before making a mold to ensure it’s what you want. Using real materials to visualize an idea or design is an incredible and fulfilling moment. We want to give all students the opportunity to experience that. Work in the shop to visualize, sketch out, sculpt, and digitally design your chess pieces. Our instructor works with students the whole way, from the design component, to the molding and casting of their pieces.
