Description

Plaster Press Mould Making for Pottery Ceramics for Adult Beginners.

2 Sundays weekend Course.

Learn how to make a 2-part plaster press mould to create multiple pots/forms from the same mould in this intensive course held over consecutive Sundays with clay artist Paddy Hartley at his London Bridge studio. During your first Sunday you will learn how to make a simple master form from which you will create your two part mould. Your second sunday will involve using your mould to create multiple repeat forms which you can decorate, embellish or alter with a focus on good technique and good build quality. You will choose your best two pots to go forward to firing and glazing.

Over an intensive 2 days you will be will be introduced to:

A straightforward design approach.
The work of other press mould potters (imagery)
How to safely work with clay (yes, there is a dangerous way to work with clay!)
Preparing/wedging clay.
How to create a clay master
How to create a 2 part press mould
How to apply clay and draw your pot from your mould
Fettling, finishing, texturing and burnishing/polishing.


COURSE NUMBERS: Only 2 places are available per course so you are ensured excellent one-on-one contact time and guidance in the creation of your work.

GLAZING AND COLLECTING FINISHED WORK: Once built, ceramic work can take up to a week/10 days to dry and fire prior to glazing. You will be informed by email when your work is ready for glazing whereupon you can either decide to let the studio glaze your work with your selection of glaze or you can arrange to visit the studio for a ‘glaze evening’ to glaze the work yourself which should take no more than an hour. Once glazed, all work must be collected within 4 weeks.

LOCATION: The studio is located near the Guy’s Hospital Campus, King’s College London (2 minute walk from London Bridge Tube Station) and is secure access only. Paddy will email all participants prior to the class to arrange to meet you as a group outside the studio on the day.
