Through the course you will learn how to:
- Take clay impressions and textures.
- Construct simple single use moulds with clay and plastic.
- Mix Jesmonite and learn about pigments.
- Colour your Jesmonite to make painterly colourful sculptures and learn techniques such as terrazzo, marbling and painting directly into the mould.
By the end of the course you will have made a small collection of unique cast colourful Jesmonite sculptures measuring approximately 5cm in diameter. You will be given the option to apply fixings to your finished forms so you can either wear them or fix them to your wall.
