Parent & Child Activity: Plaster Casting
In this casting workshop you will roll out a slab of clay and then use tools and materials provided such as lace, shells, buttons, nuts and bolts, spanners and cogs to press into the damp clay. All of the materials are removed leaving an impression in the clay. You then build strong clay walls around your work and pour liquid plaster on top. In about fifteen minutes the plaster will set like stone and you are left with a permanent cast!This is a family workshop where parents or guardians participate with their child, both producing a piece of work.
