Charlotte Dawson reviewed: Plaster mould making for slip cast ceramics with Ed Bentley

"In total I spent 10 days working with Ed in his studio in Stoke on Trent, Over the course of 3 months. Together we produced, 1 large sculpture mould and 6 smaller scale moulds for hand sized sculptures. Between tuition dates I was able to contact Ed to ask for advice and always looked forward to returning to commence our next sessions. Ed is an excellent teacher and none of the stages felt rushed, he provided us with plenty of time to take each stage at the pace required to learn, encouraged me to take pictures at every stage and had no issue answering any questions I had about the process we were learning or other slip casting processes. I now feel I could successfully produce slip casting moulds independently, but could also always attend some top up session for more difficult shapes. The moulds we produced together are to an incredible standard and really beautifully finished. Ed is definitely worth every penny! "

"I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to do a course on mould making with Ed Bentley. It was such an invaluable experience. I learnt so much, felt inspired and encouraged to develop more complex moulds and tackle challenging forms. Ed is an excellent teacher, most generous in sharing his vast knowledge, very positive and supportive and interested in helping you find the best techniques for your practice. He is also a kind and thoughtful host. I can't wait to go back and learn more. "

"I spent 3 fabulous days with Ed creating plaster moulds for my sculptures. It was absolutely brilliant being immersed in creativity and learning so much from the plaster mould master! Not only is Ed a very patient, knowledgeable and amazing teacher but he’s also a truly lovely person. "

"I had an excellent experience working with Ed to learn sledging skills. We produced a large form and I am very grateful to be able to learn from someone with Ed's level of skill. He was generous with his knowledge and very welcoming. I had a great time - a pleasure all round."
