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!
During the course you will identify various rubber mould making techniques including: solid rubber moulds , skin moulds with plaster jackets, cavity moulds with plaster jackets. You will learn how this wonderfully versatile material can be manipulated and have a go at casting in plaster, wax and cement.
Please bring old clothes and strong footwear, we don’t want to see you in a plaster cast!Also note that the cost of the class includes 1kg of Silcone - any additional materials can be purchased on the day.
A real chance to get creative with our experienced tutor casting an eye over you for guidance and support.
Only 10 spaces available so sign up quick before those design ideas go mouldy!

London Sculpture Workshop is the first, not-for-profit, community interest organisation, based in London, with exceptional facilities for artists and those interested in making work in 3D. Its workshop is right on the river by Thames Barrier and has incredible views of the Thames guiding lots of inspiration for 3D pieces. It offers a superbly equipped metal and wood workshop with additional mould making and ceramic areas.
London Sculpture Workshop was established in 2012 by two founding members Giles Corby, MA (RCA) and Jessica Mello, MFA (Slade) and it also has a studio manager Melis van den Berg, MFA (Slade). They are all practicing artists’, bringing their own ideas and inspiration to the organisation, and between them, have 21 years of teaching experience.
