Casting Workshop (Archway)

The Casting Workshop is focused on mould making, casting and object making in plaster, clay, resin and other materials. Our workshop is used primarily by Foundation students and students on MA Fine Art and MA Art and Science courses.

We have heaters for wax and Vinamold moulding compound and a resin de-gasser, as well as hand tools used for mould and model making.

In this space students can make moulds of objects, cast from moulds in various materials or make unique sculptural or designed objects from selected materials. Students have previously produced body part casts, slip moulds for ceramics, coloured cement structures and a variety of unique sculptural objects.
