Mould Making Workshop

The initial start of the Habitat Residency took place in the Burg’s casting and laminating workshop. In a one-day mold-making workshop led by RenĂ© Braun, we gained
a comprehensive insight into the various methods of molding. Using collected objects as examples, we dis- cussed the requirements of various geometries for mold making and possible ways of implementing them. In the process, we learned about the specific properties and processing methods of various molding and casting com- pounds. Based on the knowledge we gained, we started building our own molds from fast-curing silicones and polymer plaster.
