About This Class

Long before 3D Printing, people were "printing" forms out of metal, clay and concrete. In this class, we're going to play with casting simple shapes out of concrete. It's fun and easy. Once you get the hang of it, you'll want to start making all kinds of things out of concrete.

I'll show you how to pour concrete into geometric molds and create cool shapes that you can use for plant holders, candles, or maybe just a fun object to make your desk look stylish.

In no time at all, you can make some really cool-looking stuff to keep for yourself or give as gifts.
