Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Over this six week course I will take you through all the processes of mold making and slip casting. Slip casting is a technique where a liquid clay body, slip, is poured into plaster moulds and allowed to form a layer, the cast, on the inside walls of the mould. It gives very precise and consistent shapes, and is now the most common technique used for commercial mass-produced pottery.

Classes will take place on Mondays at 7pm until 8.30pm commencing on the 18th of July 2022.
