In this two day mould making intensive, Trudy will lead you through a low-tech method of making moulds, that she has pioneered, using a plaster and paper mixture called ‘Paperplaster’. Through demonstrations and then hands-on, the class will make simple (one and two part) press and/or slip-casting moulds. This workshop is for those of intermediate to advanced skill levels who are interested in learning more about making and using moulds. This process is a direct way of working with plaster that results in lightweight, strong moulds that are easy to make, use and store. No more heavy, bulky moulds and, best of all, no more plaster disasters!
