Silicone Mould Making with Giulia Gentili

Make your own moulds for casting objects. Bring a small object and learn to produce a two-part silicone mould for a detailed cast. You will experiment with a variety of casting materials including concrete, wax and plaster. The course will allow time to experiment with colour and consider the changing meaning of the cast object when seen in a new material.
