The focus of the workshop was to teach the students the possibilities available to them through the process of Casting. 12 groups of students spent the day designing and making 12 segments of a giant cast clock.
The student groups began by working with clay to explore texture, embedding objects which have interesting textural qualities into the segment. The students then made silicone moulds from the sculptural clock face segments they have worked on.
After lunch the groups made plaster jackets for the moulds to reinforce them and get them ready for casting. Finally each mould was used to cast into creating the 12 segments that were then combined on a frame to form the clock.
This workshop was lead by tutors Daniel Lauand and Alyssa Ohse.
