About Weekend Course - Jesmo-Days, Mould Making with Jesmonite with Jack Cheetham

A two-day introduction to mould making and casting with Jesmonite, an acrylic resin which is a safer and more environmentally conscious alternative to resin and fibreglass. You will make moulds from silicone, clay and recycled plastic, to create your own individual colour palettes for casts and tests. We will experiment with adding other materials to the Jesmonite to create different painterly effects and finishes such as terrazzo or marbling and finish the pieces by sealing, carving and polishing them. By the end of the course you will have produced a number of unique Jesmonite tests, colour samples, objects/vessels and mould making ideas, which can potentially be used for making products, objects and sculptures in the future.

Jack Cheetham is a visual artist based in Glasgow. He graduated from the MFA programme at Glasgow School of Art in 2014, and exhibits nationally and internationally. Most recent exhibitions include, GESTS Curfew, Edinburgh; JOHN Ffffriedrich, Frankfurt am Main, and GOOD £UCK, curated by Beagles and Ramsay for Glasgow International 2018. He is currently Casting Technician & Open Studio Tutor at Glasgow School of Art and regularly teaches courses at Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow Clyde College and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.

Course runs: Saturday 22 and 29 February 2020, 10-4pm, £200 (£180)
