BREAKING THE MOULD: Slip-casting Disassembled with Monika Patuszynska
Break the mold that holds back the flow of your creative thought... In these two weeks, Monika Patuszynska will focus on the process of creating—helping participants to try to unlearn some of the imprinted superstitions about a form, a function and a process of making: specifically regarding slip- casting. The workshop will show new ways of approaching the plaster mould, not as an end in itself, but as a creative medium in its own right—a beginning rather than the end of the process of creation. Broken, smashed, sawed into slices, filled up with paper pulp or chocolate cereals, the plaster mould provides endless possibilities. Experimenting with a wide range of techniques for creating pattern and texture, using methods developed by the artist, slip-casting will be entirely disassembled and rebuilt anew before your eyes.
