Sculpt, Mould, Cast: The Art of Cast Making
THREE DAY WORKSHOP AT THE ASHMOLEAN MUSEUM
Follow in the footsteps of ancient Greek and Roman sculptors to create your own pint-sized plaster statue. You’ll be given special entry to the hidden Lower Cast Gallery, a space not normally open to the public, to gain inspiration from the full Ashmolean collection. Under the guidance of an expert artist, you’ll produce a sketch of your piece, then transform your creation from pencil to clay before casting it in plaster. No previous artistic experience necessary.
Wed 25 Sep, Wed 9 & 23 Oct, 10.30am–4pm
Ashmolean Museum Learning Studio
With Francesca Shakespeare (Artist) and Abbey Ellis (Researcher)
