BONE CHINA & MOULD MAKING COURSES 2018 – Sasha Wardell

Toby's-mould

Sasha Wardell’s courses in France are announced for 2018. They are likely to sell out quickly!

Two different types of courses are offered over five and a half days – the general introductory course and an advanced course. Both of which can run simultaneously as the courses are limited to 4 students maximum to allow for personal tuition.

The introductory course: includes general model and mould making techniques for those requiring basic plaster skills or needing a refresher course.
The advanced course: is aimed at those who already possess a certain knowledge in this field or for those who have already done the introductory course here. ( NB Anyone who has not done my introductory course, please contact beforehand to discuss the possibilities)

During the Introductory course you will be introduced to:

• MODEL MAKING using machine and hand techniques i.e. plaster lathe and whirler turning, hand carving, flat plaster work etc.

• MOULD MAKING which covers ‘drop-out’ or simple piece moulds including spares and ‘setter’ making ( a supplementary piece used for minimising rim distortion during drying and firing.)

• SLIPCASTING in bone china including finishing techniques.

(NB It is not possible to make a cast from the moulds produced during the course as they will not be dry enough, however, casting experiments can be done into ready-made moulds ready for firing.)

• PACKING AND FIRING an electric kiln for bone china (1260 c)

During the advanced course you will be introduced to:

• HANDLE AND SPOUT MAKING

• LIDDED CONTAINERS

• BLOCKING AND CASING ( process used for multiple mould manufacture)

• MULTI-PART MOULD MANUFACTURE
