From the basic to advanced casting - Insignia for everyday life
The workshop will give you an introduction to experiment with metal casting in a variety of ways. We will explore different ways of molding and casting by carving directly into molds of stone, rubber and plaster to give different results. We will use these same molds and models for further development through sand casting and lost wax casting.
Starting from a single personal inspirational point we will look how our ideas will be transformed and altered by the techniques we use.
