Looking for a fun new hobby that'll let your creativity soar? This two-day sculpting course will show you the flexibility (literally!) of using silicone to make moulds for casting your very own sculptures.

Silicone is a versatile material that enables you to make highly detailed moulds that are flexible and can be used to make many casts. During the course, you will identify various rubber mould making techniques and you will enjoy a combination of expert demonstrations and hands-on learning to make a two-part silicone skin mould with a plaster jacket.

Your friendly local tutor will guide you through the process of making your moulds from a variety of provided items. You're also free to bring along anything you'd like to try and cast and you can discuss its suitability with your teacher. By the end of the two days, you'll have a beautiful silicone mould that you can use for casting again and again.

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