Plaster Mould Making Workshop
This class is a four hour work shop that gives students the opportunity to make a simple plaster mould of an object of their choice. This mould can be of an object they want to reproduce in clay, either through the slip casting technique or through pressing plastic clay into the mould. The mould making process is useful both for functional and sculptural ceramics. Students will be asked to consult with the studio in regards to what they would like to make a mould of – to ensure the task is completable within the time of the workshop. If the object is very simple (a drop-out mould such as a plate or small bowl), you may have the opportunity to make more than one mould.
There is a slip-casting and press moulding work shop the following week which is recommended as a compliment to this workshop. You will be able to use the moulds you produce along with various studio moulds.

Slip Casting and Press-Moulding Workshop
This is an ideal follow on class from the plaster mould making workshop. Although students with their own plaster moulds are welcome to attend. I also have some moulds that student’s are welcome to use.
You will have an opportunity to press mould pieces in your moulds as well as to slip cast in both earthenware and porcelain. I will demonstrate cleaning and joining techniques on your casts.
Students will be given the opportunity to practice various surface decoration techniques on their casts – such as slip trailing, the use of latex as resist and under-glazing.
All produced pieces will be glazed in a transparent glaze and fired before collection.
