Materials Demonstration

Adventures in Material and Space

Tuesday 13 October 2015, 11am – 1pm
PSC’s Project Space, 45 Gransden Avenue, London E8 3QA
You can replicate almost anything and it’s increasing a mainstay of many industries: medicine (hearts); film (props); fashion (knockoffs)–sculpture (objects). But you need to know how to replicate, including the skills, processes and materials involved.

Arthur Manzo from W P Notcutt Ltd, leading supplier of mould making and casting materials, demonstrates a range of materials, such as different rubbers, resins and Jesmonite products. He also discusses the science behind them and how to use them (and when not to!). This two-hour session opens your eyes to the multitude of possibilities out there and stimulate thinking around how they might stretch your sculptural practice. Attendees bring their own casting questions and queries–or just to find out what exists and what can be done with it.

Part of PSC’s 2015 Autumn Programme. Expect repeat and similar events in the future.
