Mould making and slip casting is a very important tool in the making of ceramics.

  • Starts Aug 20
  • 80 New Zealand dollars
  • Ranzau Road

Service Description

In these 2 workshops Kirsten will show you how to make a one-piece mould and how to use slip. You will be surprised by the infinite possibilities that the use of plaster adds to your projects. Using a symmetrical object of your choice (something from home or thrift store e.g. bowl or plate) you will build a plaster mold in week 1 and in week 2 you will use white slip to make a copy of the object. Note: Not all objects are suitable for this process and your object should be simple with no undercuts. Previous experience with ceramics is desirable. Class includes plaster, slip, bisque and glaze firing.
