Join Laura from Mennt. in her Marrickville studio across two sessions to learn the process of plaster mould making and slip casting with porcelain.

On the first day, you will be introduced to the process of creating a plaster mould. During this class, you will be creating two simple one-piece moulds ideal for beginners.

Two weeks later your moulds will be dry and ready for pouring and you will be using porcelain to cast into your moulds. This class will introduce you to the casting process and teach you tips and tricks to cast successfully.

Every item you create during the class will then be fired and glazed as requested and ready to pick up in the following weeks. You will also get to keep the two moulds you have made, perfect to continue your slip casting journey at home!

Each workshop will take around two and a half hours and will include a cheeseboard and a glass of sparkling, in the evening or a cake and juice during the day making it ideal to book with a friend or a great chance to get to know other like-minded creatives.

It is recommended that you first complete Mennt.'s Porcelain Hand Building Workshop to give you a basic understanding and confidence when working with clay.

Please note: Only book if you can attend both workshop dates as the second date is the same time as the first, just two weeks later.

Mennt is a design studio operating out of a small Sydney studio. Mennt’s products are designed and made by Laura Butler with creative direction from her partner Aman Braich.

Mennt has an uncompromising focus on high quality materials. We believe in creating products that will last a lifetime with continual love and use.

We believe that high quality design should be available to everyone, not just the 1%. In order to create a more affordable product, we reimagined our entire approach to create a more productive and streamlined process.

Mennt is minimalist in its approach to design; we strip our products down to only the necessary elements and focus on the rituals of everyday life.

Mennt is designed with longevity in mind. Our clay is sourced sustainably from Victoria and we recycle as part of our daily practice in the studio. We design and create refined objects that will not only last a lifetime, but will polish with age.

Mennt. is COVID-19 aware This means that this teacher won't run this class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant government restrictions (e.g. maximum number of guests).
