Did you know?

Silicon is the seventh-most abundant element in the universe and the second-most abundant element on the planet, after oxygen, thank goodness, deep breaths! About 25 percent of the Earth's crust is made up of silicone - so if you're ever low on casting materials - dig deep, there is plenty of it!

Good - lots of information and learnt a lot, but there was quite a bit to do and there were probably a few too many people on the course - there was quite a bit of waiting around .

I've done four courses at the LSW - all brilliant - friendly tutors who make the best use of the time to get the techniques learnt and at least one piece of sculpture to take home . The silicone mould making course was in the usual mould of the others I have done - wax, casting in concrete and plaster, pewter casting and bronze casting - tools and materials provided - some materials you have to pay for, enough working space with an absorbing view on the River Thames and all tools provided, pleasant banter and useful background information about the techniques used and where you could learn more.

Really loved the course and learnt a lot in a fairly short space of time. It was a small enough group that we all got good individual attention. I wish we'd had more time at the end to experiment with casting into the moulds, but the teaching was great. Only thing was that we could have used more rolling pins as the first part of the process was quite slow as we were all sharing materials - perhaps this would have left more time at the end to cast into the moulds.

The course was a great introduction into creating silicone moulds with an energetic, and knowledgeable tutor who was really helpful and managed to give her time to all the students. There was an interesting mix of students, including several practicing artists which really brought the course to life. The only improvements I would suggest would be a little more structure to the course and to be give a clearer of the stages of casting at the beginning of the course, so you could plan your time more efficiently.
