Botanical Clay Plaster Casting Workshop

X

Description

This workshop is suitable for all abilities and will enable you to create a beautiful keepsake with ease. The botanical art tiles are made by pressing plants, flowers & objects into clay. They are then removed & plaster is poured over to create the cast. The process picks up an incredible amount of detail to create a beautiful raised impression. In this workshop we will create two works of art - both the clay imprint and the plaster cast, in a shape and size of your choice. A lovely memory of summer flowers, or perhaps more sentimental flowers - a dried wedding bouquet or a relatives favourite flower could be pressed to create a treasured keepsake. The Botanical Impressions and casts make ideal gifts for garden and nature lovers too. The artist will demonstrate how to roll out your clay, imprint your foliage and create a frame to pour in the plaster of Paris. This will then set over lunch - lunch can be purchase in the cafe/restaurant downstairs or BYO Lunch. After lunch we will delicately paint the plaster cast using acrylic paints and add further colouring the the clay imprints. We can then add a D ring hook to the back of each art piece so they can be hung on the wall.
