Saturday September 5th – Life Casting Sculpture Workshop

RM170.00

Life casting is a historic art technique practiced by several ancient cultures. The practice of life casting was wide spread in the 19th century, during which it was closely linked to both art and science, and was considered a standard part of the sculptor’s technique. Life casting, whether interpreted as a normal sculptural process, documentary piece or affectionate souvenir, soon gave rise, with its near perfect reproduction of reality.

It is the process of creating a three-dimensional copy of a living human body, through the use of molding and casting techniques. Compared to other three-dimensional representations of humans, the standout feature of lifecasts is their high level of realism and detail. Lifecasts can replicate details as small as fingerprints and pores.

During this workshop, you’ll learn all the techniques to create a cast mould of your hands. We’ll also cover the various mould application techniques, casting materials, and finishing techniques. You’ll study the attributes of plaster, how to pour a set of good casts, limit bubbles and other imperfections, open the moulds without damaging the casts and how to detail the final product.

Come with your family members, partner, friends to cast a pair of hands. At the end of the session, you will bring home a hand casting to be used as decor or keepsake.

*The mould created during the session is only suitable for single use, you will not be able to bring home to do multiple casts. This is due to the nature of life casting and its molding material.

Session Includes:
– All materials & tools for the session
– RM 150/pax
– Delicious refreshments are provided throughout the session.
