This is an open faced casting workshop. Participants will create a piece of their own work with a set size of 15x10x3 cm deep
On the first day the participants will create a form (either a free standing shape, or base relief style slab) from clay. When this has been achieved, we will make a box form around the clay positive and pour a plaster/silica mix around it.
Once this is set, we will remove the boxing, turn the mould over and remove the clay from the mould, leaving a “negative” space. The mould needs to be thoroughly cleaned of any clay remnants and plaster crumbs. The mould will then be dried over a couple of weeks before firing.
In the second session, once colours etc have been chosen, the mould will be filled with glass ready for firing.
In the third session, after all pieces have been fired, the participants will remove their glass form from the mould and clean any rough edges. Further cleaning will be discussed and carried out at home.
Tea and coffee supplied. Please bring your lunch
