First Year – Modelling in Relief with Kim Amis

To more deeply understand the manufacturing process of historic objects they may be treating as conservators, our first year students develop introductory historic craft skills employed by master craftsmen for centuries. This workshop focuses on bas relief modelling in clay – one of the primary processes in casting, moulding and wood and stone carving.

During the session, students gain experience of transcribing a two-dimensional image into relief form. The depth of the relief is decided by the peer group during the workshop.

The casting process learned in the first term should be sufficient to enable students to produce a silicone rubber mould and a plaster positive cast in self-directed time.
