About the Course

Have you ever wondered how Iron Man and Spidey fit so snugly into their costumes, or how special effects masks are made for your favourite movie stars?

Whether you’re a film enthusiast, fine art sculptor or an aspiring SFX artist, this one-day workshop will lay the foundations from which you’ll learn to make your very own life cast sculpture directly from the human form.

The workshop will also include a live demonstration of the mould making and casting process involved in replicating an area of a torso from a male model.

This workshop is a valuable opportunity for aspiring designers interested in creative and fine art practices, and would prove useful to those teaching or studying these subjects in search of inspiration and wanting to expand their skills.

On this course you will:
- observe and discuss exemplary life-cast sculptures and moulds for various processes
- create a mould of your own hand, and cast a replica to take home with you
- observe a larger torso casting from a living model
- leave with the technical knowledge to continue creating your own work
- have the opportunity to meet like-minded artists
- have lots of time for Q&A’s with the tutor.

What will you gain?

By the end of the workshop you’ll have a good working understand of the basic materials and processes most commonly used within contemporary life-cast sculpture projects.

You will leave with a cast of your own hand and, more importantly, the appropriate technical knowledge and skills that will enable you to go on creating more of your own sculptures in a safe and fun way.
