Saturday 15th December 9:30am - 1:30pm
Atelier La Juntana and 4D Modelshop are organizing a 1-day practical course designed for architects, model-makers, artists, or anyone wishing to discover the world of model making through casting materials and resin encapsulation.
The course will give participants an overview of the world of casting materials and its use for architectural models, covering different techniques and materials such as silicone moulds, epoxy resin, encapsulation of animation and colouring layers of resin.
Both beginner with little experience and those with professional ambitions are welcome to participate.
The course is taught across a series of short exercises combining theory and practice, solved through direct experimentation and manufacturing, and will include techniques such as carving, moulding, and casting.
Students will take with them all the work produced during the course and an instructional publication on the use of the materials together with a diploma will be provided upon completion of the course.
Each participant will also receive a 15% off any purchases made in the 4D shop on the day. The number of participants is limited to 12 people.

1-Day Model Making Workshop - Use of Metal Etching for Architecture Models.
Atelier La Juntana and 4D Modelshop are organizing a 1 day hands-on model making workshop that aims to explore the potential of metal etching for architectural models.
Participants will explore the role that building facades, particularly architectural skins, play on defining the identity of the city.
Each participant will create an architecture skin through a geometrical pattern of their own design which will be drawn onto a transparent acetate and then transfer onto a brass metal plate through the process of cyanotype and photo etching. The process recreates the materiality of perforated metal, a cutting-edge material widely use in modern architecture.
A lecture on the use of metal etching for architecture and model making will complement the workshop.
All practical materials and work developed during the course, access to tea and coffee and attendance certificate are including in the booking fee.
Before the beginning of the course a tour of the 4D modelshop facilities will be organize, including their in-house leading etching laboratory. Each participant will also receive a 15% off any purchases made in the 4D shop on the day.
