Plaster Casting Workshop with Model Citizen

Thursday 12th November, 2020

Starts: 7pm
Join the University of Atypical for our second event as part of ‘Accessing Architecture’ and spend an evening with Model Citizen. 

We had hoped to have people in the gallery to take part in a one-off plaster casting session with architect/maker John Donnelly of ‘Model Citizen’ but we can’t right now!

Sooo we thought we would bring the workshop to you! 

Register to take part in John’s workshop, and we will send you everything you will need to join us on Zoom. You will be sent all the ingredients needed to take part, apart from water and an old bowl. Each kit will be delivered in a cardboard box and your model will be made using a special non-toxic material that picks up a greater level of detail than standard gypsum. 

We are grateful for the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund in funding this programme.

Model making kit will be provided via post. Workshop will take place on Zoom.
