Mould Making - Slipcasting - Workshop - July


If you like to work with ceramics to create small series of your design , slipcasting is an ideal method for production.
In this workshop I show you how to make your own plaster moulds. I will prepare different shapes to choose from and we try to make a two-piece mould we can use afterwards. This workshop is designed to show you the basic principles of mould making and slipcasting.
The lessons are in German or English.
