On day one, we’ll demonstrate different casting processes through a series of exercises, to build confidence in working with plaster and creating moulds. No prior experience of mould making is required – just a desire to cast simple objects. Prior to the workshop we’ll advise on suitable objects to perfect a mould from. There will also be studio objects available on the day for you to choose from.
You will leave this course with a strong understanding of what constitutes excellent mould-making together with confidence to design and create you own moulds. Over the two days you will have made several moulds to take home create future casts.
NB. You’re own moulds will need to be dried out before use so we’ll practice slip casting techniques using studio moulds. You will however be able to take home any moulds that you make over the 2 days. We’ll include the bisque firing of 2 slip-cast samples in the price of the course.
All materials are included in the price of the workshop.
Location: Studio 2, Global House 21 Lombard Road Wimbledon SW19 3TZ (The studio door is down the side of the building, on the left just before the Acava studios sign).
