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.
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.
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.
This class is taught by artist and sculptor Robert Worley. A graduate Royal College of Art his art depicts monstrosity, doom and the ancient.
Spaces are limited to 8 people - so get your name down and get ready to become a master of plaster
