This 4-week ceramics course is in our intermediate ceramics class program however; it is Ideal for beginners through to more advanced ceramicists interested in slip casting. No slip casting experience required.
This class will introduce participants to the techniques and skills needed to form a model, make a plaster mould from that model and produce slip cast objects from that mould. Students will produce a model and moulds of their own design. This course provides a great foundation for anyone who wants to incorporate slip casting into their ceramics practice. All materials and tools provided.
