Casting with Jesmonite

Casting with Jesmonite

Time: 6pm to 8pm

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Together we will be experimenting with the exciting material Jesmonite; a safe and lightweight alternative to cast concrete. It’s fast to set and anyone can cast with it successfully. 

The experimenting part? What we’ll be adding to the material: acrylic chips, sawdust, liquid dyes, egg shells, ash and more (you can even bring something of your own)! How will it look suspended? How much will the material blend and alter the colour? Let’s find out!

At the end of the workshop you’ll be taking away you’re own little experimental cast Jesmonite pot/vase.
