One is Never Enough: Mould making for clay

When Saturday 25th August 2018 10:00am - 3:30am
Where  CEA Craft Studios, Cnr Thames and Lorne Sts, Morrinsville 3300 View Map

Have an idea that requires making multiples of a certain shape?  By using a plaster mould you get quick, easy and consistent results.

Carol Stewart, a well-resprected ceramist whose work often incorporates multiples to emphasise an idea, will teach you how to make unique one and two-piece plaster moulds suitable for clay press-moulding and/or slip-casting.  

  • Students need to bring an item from which to cast a one-piece mould. Suitable items might be a fancy button, a dolls face, a piece of lace, a shell, cabbage leaves etc.  Avoid items with undercuts – they will not replicate cleanly. 
  •  
  • Also bring an item from which to make a two-piece mould.  A vegetable or piece of fruit is a good practice item.  Please do not expect to create a mould of a cherished piece – remember this is a learning process!!
  •  
  • Note : we will test the moulds created in the class by press moulding. The moulds need to dry for about a week before they can be used with casting slip.
