Event description

Description

This two-day intermediate level hands-on course will guide you through the process of plaster mould making for slip casting. Fast-paced and informal, Ed will demonstrate various techniques from the preparation of a shape to produce in ceramic to the making of a plaster mould from this shape. A slipcasting demonstration will also be given together with the opportunity to practice this technique using ready-made moulds. On the first day please bring with you an object you would like to make a mould from, if you can visualise making a one or two part mould from it and its no larger than approximately 20cm it should be ideal. At the end of the course you can then take your completed mould home to dry out before taking slip-casts from it.

Ed Bentley is an award-winning shape designer and product developer with over 30 years experience within the global ceramic industry. Ed teaches at degree level nationally and runs his own mould-making courses from his workshop in Staffordshire.

Items to bring: Small object for casting (see course description), towel, apron, notepad, pen, means of getting your finished moulds home (e.g. cardboard crate)

Included: Course materials, lunch, refreshments, preferential discounts against all of our products.
