Moulding & Casting – 3 Days
March 13, 2020 @ 9:00 am - March 15, 2020 @ 5:00 pm£575.00
This three day moulding and casting workshop is designed to teach you the essential skills of moulding and casting using current industry methods.
This 3 day workshop will be led by our visiting tutor Rich Balmain, giving you first hand opportunities to understand the complete sculptural procedures. For this workshop you will need to bring a finished clay portrait head sculpture or similar sized sculptural piece.
Whatever your previous experience or skill level, Richard will guide you through all the technical processes, enabling you to master the alchemy of moulding and casting so you understand the finishing processes of creating a sculpture. You will be taught to mould, cast and finish your own piece. At the end of the course you will receive a step by step guide on all the processes so that you can produce your own moulds at home.
For this workshop you will need to bring your own clay portrait head sculpture (or similar simply shaped piece) to be moulded.
Day 1 – Mould preparation and applying rubber.
Day 2 – Case building, de-moulding and casting.
Day 3 – De-moulding, fettling and patination.
