Looking forward to improving your model making techniques, while exploring alternative urban strategies for Hackney Wick in the heart of the creative community?
As part of the London Festival of Architecture 2022, Atelier La Juntana and 4D Modelshop, with the support of Axalta Powder Coatings and Grow Hackney, are organizing a 1-day practical course designed for architects, model-makers, artists, designers or anyone wishing to discover the world of creative making through silicone moulds and casting materials. The workshop will take place in the fantastic Grow Hackney venue at the heart of Hackney Wick, and participants will be encourage to explore alternative urban strategies for the area through model making and colour.
Participants will be provided with a fantastic workshop package with all the necessary materials to conduct the workshop. The package will include exciting colours from our support partner Axalta Powder Coatings.
The course will give participants an overview of the world of model making, providing an understanding of the process of casting and colour, covering the different techniques and materials available, including the use of silicone moulds, casting coloured transparent resins and plaster resin with different tones and additives. Both beginners with little experience and those with professional ambitions are welcome to participate.
The course will be taught across a series of short exercises combining theory and practice, through which participants are challenged to solve a given brief by means of making. The exercises will be conducted through direct experimentation with the materials, and will include techniques such as carving, moulding, and casting.
To close the session we will be joined by representatives from the London Festival or Architecture, Axalta Powder Coatings and Grow Hackney to briefly present the workshop results through an interactive exhibition.
