Slip casting workshop, 2.5 hours, 55 €
Slip casting workshop
with Kesem Yahav
November 20, 11:00 – 13:30
About the workshop:
Get your creative side out and learn something new, join a Clay workshop with your friends.
Slip casting is a technique for the mass production of pottery. A liquid clay body slip is poured into plaster molds and allowed to form a layer inside the mold. I use this technique to create most of my work.
We will start with an introduction to slip casting, I will explain and demonstrate this industrial and creative process, how to cast and decorate.
You will cast 3 pieces using existing plaster molds (vase, cup, plate) you will also decorate them with colors.
When the project is finished you will leave it in my studio so they can get dry,
your pieces will be dipped in clear glaze, fired in my kiln, and will be ready for pick up after 2 weeks.
This is a 2.5 hours workshop that covers the basics of slip casting an object.
