Event description

Description

Make an aluminium cast as part of Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop's Winter Event on Saturday 1 Dec 2018. This workshop involves two sessions across the 1 December, and will give participants the chance to make a small scale aluminium low relief sculpture by carving into a hardened sand mould.

1-2pm Session 1

- Receive your mould and get an introduction to the process from the artist leading the workshop.

- Carve into the mould with metal tools, to make a pattern, shape, or words, which will form part of a flat tile of aluminium.

- Clean the mould.

- Watch the tutor hardening the mould with flames.

4.30-5.30pm Session 2

- See all the moulds being cast ouside in the ESW Courtyard. This involves the aluminum being heated to 700 degrees, when it can be poured into your cast.

- Tidy up your cast sculpture and take it home to display or give away as a gift!
