This is a hands-on workshop in our School of Art and Design 3D labs, aimed at art and design students and creative practitioners wanting to introduce mould making and foundry techniques into their art making repertoire. Utilizing the miniature and simple form, students will bring a selection of found objects to cast from. Choosing one, they will then make a mould, pour a wax, invest the wax, steam the wax leaving a cavity into which molten bronze will be poured. The bronze will then be chased, patinated and finished. (Limit of 12 participants)
Harriet Stockman and Angus Roberts
Angus Roberts is a current MPhil candidate and technician in the 3D Wood and Metal Labs at AUT. Angus’ practice centres around a mystical and ritualistic treatment of materials such that mythical and alchemical traditions are invoked. This particularly involves the working of metal to an extent in which it becomes sacred.
Harriet Stockman is a senior technician in the 3D Wet Labs in the School of Art & Design at AUT. Her art practice is led by making, sharing, supporting, relationships, technicity, event, object and installation. Her point of focus naturally shifts between these areas of interest depending on the project in front of her; however, consistent companions to this milieu are clay and casting and their associated environs.
Harriet is a founding member of the Public Share collective.
