    What you'll learn

    An exciting two-day intensive course focusing on plaster casting from waste moulds to plaster piece moulds, to eventually casting a sculpture and looking at finishing options. Open to all levels.

    In this class

    Day One You will make a quick clay sculpture and a plaster waste mould and then cast in fast set concrete. Participants then have the option to cast a small object they have brought in, or select something from around the workshop to make a plaster piece mould.

    Day two You will finish the plaster piece mould and have the options of making a cast in wax, plaster or fast setting concrete with colour pigment finishes.

    It's all very hands-on with plenty of time to discuss projects in detail with the tutor.

    Now you can

    • get an overview of what wonders are possible to make with mould - making and casting
    • a chance to re produce or design your own sculpture or object in plaster
    • leave the class with a handmade product of your own

    Due to a metal shortage during the Second World War, Oscars were made of painted plaster for three years. Following the war, the Academy invited recipients to redeem the plaster figures for gold-plated metal ones.
