Workshop: Plaster-casting with Des Hughes
Mon 28 November 2016, 18:30 – 20:30 GMT
Take part in a plaster-casting workshop with artist Des Hughes.
Des Hughes is working with Eastside Projects throughout 'Production Show', working in collaboration with Craven Dunnill Jackfield Ltd in Ironbridge to develop new work using the encaustic tile making process.
Rather than producing a pattern or image by painting a glaze on the front edge of a tile, encaustic tile making uses different coloured clays that are inlaid into the body of the tile and revealed through rubbing back the surface. Taking aspects of this production process and themes in Des’ work, everyone who joins the workshop will make a sculptural object using coloured plasters to take away.
This workshop is exclusively for ESP members, but booking is essential. If your plans change please let us know so we can open up your space to someone else. For more information about ESP see www.eastsideprojects.org/esp
