Life Casting Sculpture Workshop: Hand Casting & Mould Making for a Pair of Hands

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. In conjunction with Valentine’s day, this workshop is designed for a casting of a pair of hands. Come with your partner, friends, siblings or come alone to cast both your hands. At the end of the session, you will bring home a pair of life-like hand casting to be used as a trinket dish, decor or keepsake.
