Through the course participants will also learn:
Basic plaster working and slip casting processes including mixing, timing and mould releasing.
How mould-making and slip casting could be applied to your own practice
We will have a range of dishes, vases or tumblers to cast, however, participants are also welcome to bring an item that will easily release from a mould to cast of their own.
The course costs cover tuition, basic materials, firing and consumables (including dust masks).
