Slip casting course – 6 weeks


Time: Tuesdays 9:30 – 11:30
Term 1: 28th Feb – 4 April
Term 2:  2nd May – 6th June
Location:  The Gather Studio – Mount Lawley
Suitable for all levels

Learn the art of working with liquid clay and create your own tableware.

Over 6 weeks students will learn to create one-piece plaster molds and the science behind creating slip (liquid clay) and casting.  By the end of the 6 weeks, students will have approximately 6 matching pieces to take home, the plaster mold, and all the knowledge to continue slip casting at home.

On the first class we make the form out of clay and a plaster mold.   Over the following three weeks students will learn the science of slip, how to colour slip, and create multiple casts.  Week 5 we will glaze or decorate our work, and week 6 will be finishing up pieces with a sanding bath, a glass of champagne and admiring everyone’s creations.

The course includes:

– 12 hours of tuition

– All material (except for stains and underglazes as there are so many colours to choose from)

– Bisque and glaze firing

– Hopefully at least 6 or so pieces to take home

– The plaster mold to keep creating the pieces.

– All the knowledge needed to continue slipcasting at home

Cost: $350
