Spend the day with Isabelle and Chris from Too Friendly Ceramics learning the clay slip casting process in this Melbourne workshop!

Slip casting is one method to create ceramics, where you pour a liquid clay into a plaster mould. In this workshop, you will learn the techniques behind this method, making a one-part mould and clay cast of your own. You’ll be hands-on doing the set-up for your mould, mixing and pouring the plaster and then learning how to clean them up.

After that, using moulds we have pre-made for you, you’ll get to pour your own clay slip cast and learn how to trim and clean it up.

This workshop is perfect for beginners who have no experience with ceramics. At the end of the day, you will leave your mould and slip cast form with us to be glazed and fired after the workshop and return to collect it from the studio.
