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

The morning will begin with learning the fundamentals of slip casting by working with Laura's existing plaster moulds. Each participant will get the chance to cast both a Mennt cup and plate using porcelain. This will introduce you to the casting process and teach you tips and tricks to cast successfully.

While the porcelain casts are left to dry and release from their mould we will begin the process of designing and creating two of your own one-piece plaster moulds.

By the afternoon you will have two complete plaster moulds to take home perfect to continue your slip casting journey.

This workshop will take around five hours with a half-hour break for lunch and will include afternoon tea and juice or tea making it ideal to book with a friend or a great chance to get to know other like-minded creatives.

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.
