London Jesmonite Casting Workshops, 2023
Summary: I will teach you how to cast unique objects with Jesmonite AC100 eco-resin in my East London studio. In this 3-hour relaxed workshop, you will cast TWO unique pieces; a tray from my 'Herringbone' range and a planter from my award-winning 'Faceture' range. You will mix pigments to cast your own colour combinations in silicone moulds. This workshop is suitable for beginners and groups are small, with a maximum of six participants. I will guide you every step of the way and show his tips and tricks as you create unique pieces that you'll take home with you on the day. The idea is to have fun and make some cool objects!
