This four day workshop will cover the principles of advanced mould making and casting techniques. From two part plaster moulds you will advance to reusable PVC moulding rubber moulds, using a range of materials.

About

The workshop will aim to cover the principles of making:

1. A two piece plaster mould, from a choice or combination of either found or modelled objects. Determining the parting line and registration of the mould pieces is essential to the success of this type of moulding.

2. A plaster  backup mould from an object of your making. This mould combines plaster, clay and Gelflex which is a hot-melt

PVC moulding rubber that can be reused. It can produce good detail and cope with undercuts in the master

pattern. Castings from the mould can be made from a variety materials.

Safe workshop practice will be covered.

It is essential to wear old clothes and strong footwear.
