What you will do
Two session course
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
