Join Amanda Cotton for Body Casting at Trinity Art Studios (located at Trinity Buoy Wharf). Workshops are the perfect way to spend time expressing your creativity and socialising with like-minded people. Come as a group or an individual, everyone is welcome.
Body casts are considered the perfect way to capture a memory, through the folds of your skin, your body can tell a story. In this body casting session, you can tell your story by creating an exact replica of your hand. If you are creative and enjoy being hands on, this is a great session for you. Come as a couple, group or an individual, everyone is welcome. To begin the session, Amanda will share her knowledge and skills, including a variety of examples. After testing the materials, you will create a mould of your hand. If you come as a couple/group it is possible to join hands. Following Amanda’s instruction, you will cast your mould in plaster creating an exact replica of your hand. Although your piece will take up to two weeks to fully dry, it can be taken away with you there and then to enjoy.
Ideal for: Anyone and everyone. Person’s under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult
Includes: Three hours of sculpture with up to three other like-minded people and sculptor Amanda Cotton. Plus, one plaster cast of your hand & all equipment needed for the session
Casting Material: Used by medical professionals across the globe, this is perfectly safe. Unfortunately, it cannot be used with broken or irritated skin. A skin test will be done before we begin casting. For questions around sensitivity please contact us directly before booking
