Day 2 Creating a Mould so that you can reproduce identical tiles easily.
A light lunch is included each day and all refreshments, you will be able to work into the evening in the studio once the course day is over on both days and dates. The studio closes at 7. We provide all materials and refreshments
On the first day, you will create your own design with guidance and then learn how to transfer it onto clay creating raised edges around the design using the centuries old Cuenca technique. You will then turn this into a mould using plaster of Paris.
On the second day, you will learn how to enhance this pattern working into the plaster raising the edges of the design. The mould can produce hundreds of cast tiles. Contextual reference will consist of a short talk on the development of tiles made this way, a video and a demonstration on casting and pressing out from a finished mould.
