Casting and Patina Workshop with The Fortynine Studio and Bic Tieu Studio

The Fortynine Studio and Bic Tieu Studio combine their expertise in a two-day workshop. Porcelain and bronze forms will be designed and made over two Sunday afternoons.

Day 1: Learn how to create forms from wax for casting in bronze, then how to sculpt a form in clay to create a plaster mould for slip casting.

Day 2: Learn how to slip cast using porcelain or terracotta. Pieces can be carved or textured and oxides added to the finished pieces to accentuate the texture. There will be demonstrations on how to refine bronze piece and clean up any imperfections from the casting process. 

Ceramic pieces will be fired ready to be picked up a week later.

Details: Sunday 8 October and Sunday 15 October, 1pm – 5pm, $350 (plus casting fees approx $25), book via Eventbrite
