A four day intensive course covering many aspects of the Jesmonite casting systems.

This highly versatile material will be explored in a number of different ways.

As a mouldmaking and casting material, Jesmonite can be a valuable addition and alternative to the standard traditional systems available.

Non toxic and easy to use, students will be taken through many aspects of two different Jesmonite systems; including material specifications, applications, working systems, several different finishes and safe working practices.

The course encourages a hands on approach and students will produce several different moulds and casts over the duration of the course.

Comprehensive notes are also provided for future reference.
