Botanical Casting Masterclass
Each moment of the year has its own beauty - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Then you'll roll out clay to create a final impression cast using your own choice of botanical blooms and exploring composition and layout for your final cast.
One final plaster pour and a bit of patience, and you'll create a relief cast directly into a frame which you'll learn how to clean up and finish ready to hang in your home!
Expect a fun, messy and wildly creative workshop that will give you lots of ideas and plenty of advice to continue your casting practice beyond the classroom.
