Advanced Leaf Casting


2018 Advanced Leaf Casting

  • Tuesday, June 12, 2018, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Tuesday, June 19, 2018, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

This is a two-part class. For those who have worked with casting before, this class will explore methods for using multiple leaves and larger leaves to create deeper casts suitable for water features or garden sculptures.

All materials are supplied but participants are welcome to bring along materials they want use for casting.

These “sculptures” preserve the graceful shapes, intricate vein patterns and curving margins of the leaves. Concrete leaf castings are beautiful, inexpensive and fun to make. You can display them as decorative garden accents, use them as a surface for holding birdseed; or as a gift for a special friend. Best of all, the casting weathers elegantly, becoming more picturesque with age.

If you enjoyed our previous leaf casting workshops or if you have wanted to, you are going to be ecstatic! We will be creating larger, sturdier castings using multiple leaves which will be suitable as a water feature or garden sculpture.

We provide a great selection of leaves and all the materials you’ll need. Your leaf casting will cure for seven days, and then, one week later, you’ll return to “unmold” your creation, clean it and paint it if you choose. Please wear old clothing as you will be working with concrete.
