Workshop No. 3: Coin Design

Workshop Poster 2012

This workshop involved the the development of an original coin design. While a type workshop at its core, the component of bas relief design was equally important. Further, as a workshop, student were required to go beyond the development of a concept and final design, and to sculpt a positive design at approx. eight times actual size, cast a flexible silicon negative mold, and, as a final step, cast a urethane positive, dimensional coin. Conducted over the course of two successive weekends in our studio and in-house workshop, the students exhibited a remarkable ability to make decisions in a timely manner, and to quickly learn means of fabrication.
