What will I learn?

Students will learn to design and carve a clay model form, which will then be used to make a two-piece plaster mould. Once your mould is dry, we will explore working with clay slip by casting the form. We will use a variety of techniques for surface decoration. Your finished pieces can then be glazed.

This course is for beginners or more advanced with an interest in learning how to make moulds for slip casting.

What could I progress on to?

Use your knowledge in your own studio to create batch pieces.

Yes, finished work will be charged at £2.00 per kilo dry weight
