About the Workshop
Plaster moulds are used since centuries within the practice of ceramics. They give us the possibility to work in series and reproduce that which we choose as our model. When ready they can be used for casting or for press moulding.
In this workshop we are going to learn how to execute simple moulds up to two parts. Taught by Katie Lagast, a Belgian artist who has lived in Lisbon since 2015, the 12-hour workshop will take place on the 11th, 13th, 18th and 20th of January (from 7pm to 10pm)
