Flower Plaster Tile Casting with Ceramic Xmas Decorations - Date: 2nd November 9.30-12.30
FLOWER NATURE PLASTER CASTING WORKSHOP
About the Course
Learn to make your own beautiful flower nature plaster cast tile creating your own piece of artwork. No previous experience is necessary!
Over the course we will make 1 to 2 small tiles and as a Christmas special we will be making a small collection of ceramic hanging decorations. These will be taken away at the end of the session, fired and posted back to you.
There will be flowers and foliage for you to choose from however if there are any particular flowers or small objects you would like to cast please bring along and we can see what we can do.
The course will cover rolling out the clay, designing and arranging the flowers, greasing the frame, sealing the frame, mixing the plaster and pouring in. We will have a tea break whilst the plaster sets and I will show you how to sand and finish your tiles. Then the exciting bit of pulling off the clay to reveal your cast.
You will be given a small sample pack to finish off your tiles at home as its best to do this once completely dry normally after a few days.
