Vegetable Casting & Seasonal plant material from the garden

The process of trying to preserve plants has been around for centuries.  Before camera’s were around and plants were able to be captured on film Botanists would use this process to study any changes and record different plant species.  The plant is pressed into wet clay and then carefully removed to produce a negative impression.  Plaster is then poured onto the clay and left to set.  When the clay is peeled away you are left with a positive direct cast of the plant. In this workshop you will learn the traditional method of casting using clay walls and how to cast directly within

.a frame. You will create at least two examples to take home.
