Slip Casting & Basic Mould Making with Dianne Peach
‘Casting slip’, white or coloured, is a liquid form of clay that has amazing versatility for vessel and object construction. No prior experience necessary. Students will make simple moulds with plaster, plus use ready-made moulds to understand the casting process. They may experiment with mixing and matching plaster elements to create unique cast objects, and explore the unusual method of casting on a plaster slab. Relevant decorations, glazing, and firing options will be discussed.
