Botanical Relief Art with Jo

We will be using flowers to press into a clay sheet. We will then secure this in a mould (plastic tub) and mix up plaster to pour on top. This will create a plaster impression of your arrangement. You will need to take this home in order for the plaster to fully set before you can reveal your unique piece of art. Jo will bring some small plaster casts for you to experience the big reveal and to trial paint effects. It is optional to keep prints monochrome or with colour highlights.

10 places. Cost £5.
