What you will do
2 hour workshop
In this body casting session, you can tell your story by creating an exact replica of your hand. If you are creative and enjoy being hands on, this is a great session for you. Come as a couple, group or an individual, everyone is welcome. To begin the session, Amanda will share her knowledge and skills, including a variety of examples. After testing the materials, you will create a mould of your hand. If you come as a couple/group it is possible to join hands. Following Amanda’s instruction, you will cast your mould in plaster creating an exact replica of your hand. Although your piece will take up to two weeks to fully dry, it can be taken away with you there and then to enjoy.

About your host, Trinity Art Studios
Trinity Art Studios was founded in 2005 by the artist Ian Robert Felton. It is located at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London's Docklands beneath London's only lighthouse and where two rivers meet. This large studio is housed in a beautiful brick building from 1835. Original oak beams in the high ceiling with natural sunlight illuminating the space.
Ian has developed his own exercises and techniques to explore the world of colour through oil paint. His abstract paintings have become very iconic and collectable. From the same venue he hosts a collective of many other professional, semi professional and amateur artists. Every quarter the studio holds its seasonal exhibitions.
