Sculpture workshop at Forge Mill

Following on from the embossing workshop we ran a 2 day sculpture casting workshop at the mill last weekend. People made clay relief plaques developed from imagery from the museum collection or items they brought along. A plaster mould was made from the clay original. These were”waste” moulds into which plaster was poured to make a copy of the original. They are waste moulds because you have to chisel off the mould to reveal the plaster cast. A dramatic experience for those that have never done it before, but great fun!
