Concrete Casting Workshop

15 June 2016

The A-Level Product Designers and A-Level Artists came together to take part in a concrete casting workshop. The aim of the day was to draw on the experiences of both groups of students in the design and manufacture of a large 1meter diameter cast clock. Boys worked in pairs designing the twelve segments of the clock. They used clay to produce a textured design from which they cast a silicon mould to then produce the finished concrete piece. The boys showed an excellent level of creativity and imagination at the same time as learning relevant skills to support their own work. The clock will be installed in the Design Technology department.
