Limited Class Sizes for Maximum Learning Experience
We limit the size of our classes to maximize everyone's learning experience. Our student to teacher ratio is 1:2 so you are never without someone to guide you. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned user of these materials, you will be inspired and understand why many seminar graduates describe their experience as a "life changing experience."
You Will Make Your Own Molds & Castings:
Smooth-On's Concrete Technical Team will guide you as you make a "pour-on" mold and a "brush-on" mold on Day 1. Molds will be used on Day 2 to make your own castings.
- Specialty "Side Show" Demonstrations Will Be On Going
- Bring Your Questions. Let’s Discuss Your Project
