In this workshop the participants will be investigating the aesthetic and conceptual abilities of mould construction and casting plaster and concrete.

About

The architectural possibilities of both the negative space (the mould) and the positive space (the cast) will be considered through an intuitive and open-ended process. Students will be constructing and casting shapes, and are encouraged to experiment with different finishes, textures and materials. Participants will have the opportunity to think through making and explore material qualities hands-on.
