Jean White – Low tech plaster and slip casting for the home studio

In this workshop I will be showing you how to use plaster and slip in a home studio without a lot of equipment and without blocking your drains! We will be making a plaster sprig mould using a found object (I’ll be using an ammonite) and making clay sprigs from it. We’ll make a damp box to keep your sprigs in and I’ll show you how to slip cast, filling and draining a mould, trimming a cast and fettling it ready for bisque firing. I’ll be showing you my low tech home set up that you could easily copy. At the end of the workshop you’ll be able to make a good quality plaster sprig mould and slip cast, without causing plumbing problems!
