Somchai will take participants through the fundamentals of creating a ceramic slip cast mould. These moulds are a simple way to create objects both of simple or complex forms and then reproduce them. Somchai Charoen is constantly looking for new ways of making a mould that pushes the boundaries of and explores the ideas and possibilities of what mould making techniques can be.
He will demonstrate creative slip casting techniques with moulds that can easily be used to create a number of different moulds or connected in different ways to produce different shapes.
