Event description

Description

This two day course covers the fundamental principles of plaster mould making.

This is 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.

The course will cover the following:

You will learn mould making and how to cast in different materials, enabling you to create a finished piece from your casts.

As the group will be working on many different types of moulds this is a great opportunity to get an overview of what is possible for mould making and casting in a variety of materials, making this course ideal for beginners or makers wishing to work in new ways.

Day one
You will make a quick clay sculpture and a plaster waste mould from this to 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.

Open to all levels including beginners.

Old clothes essential and we recommend heavy-duty boots.

Basic material costs included.
