THE TEYOS PROJECT: VESSEL CASTING
Wednesday 18th September 14:00 – 17:00
Mezzanine | The Koppel Project Central
The teYos Project has been designed to open up a space of making and discovery. Exploring personal identity through self made objects, the workshops fosters creative agency and enables participants to express themselves in an open hands on medium. Each workshop teaches transferable making skills, that can be applied to a range of materials and techniques.
The projects ‘Vessel Casting’ workshop teaches rotational moulding, building vessels out of layers of pigmented Jesmonite. Abbie developed this casting technique, frustrated by the need for specialist facilities when working with ceramics. This vessel casting process has taken influence from slip-casting in ceramics and rotational moulding in mass manufactured plastics.
In this workshop you will choose from three different mould forms, learn how to mix and cast with Jesmonite and experiment mixing colours derived from raw powdered pigments. Bring you own creative energy to the process; each vessel created is unique and one of a kind.
Abbie Adams is a London based Designer / Maker, her craft based practice looks to investigate the value of cooperation and collaboration within making systems. The project has recently been working in collaboration with ‘The Princes Trust’ as part of a week long ‘Introduction to product design’ workshop series hosted at Somerset House, seeking to integrate young people out of full time education or employment into new work streams.
