Ever wanted to decorate your home with one-of-a-kind pieces of art? Learn to cast your own designs at this two-day sculpture casting course in London! Working with an experienced local artist, you'll learn to use objects to make plaster moulds that you can then cast in a variety of different materials.

You'll enjoy a combination of fun demonstrations and practical experience as you use found objects or quick clay sculptures to create a unique mould that expresses your creativity. You'll then be guided through the process of using your mould to cast a finished sculpture to bring home and display with pride.

During the course, you'll learn:

Day one
You will make a quick clay sculpture and a plaster waste mould from this to cast in fast set concrete. You'll then have the option of casting a small object you've brought in from home, or selecting something from around the workshop to make a plaster piece mould.

Day two
You will finish the plaster piece mould and have the options of making a cast in wax, plaster or fast setting concrete with colour pigment finishes.

You'll leave the course not only with your amazing sculpture in hand, but also the knowledge and skills to continue this hands-on artform yourself.

Please note: The stated class duration includes a one-hour break for lunch.
