Lost Foam Aluminium Casting with Virginia Hutchison

Saturdays | 1030 – 1600

20th & 27th Oct


Over 2 sessions learn to carve objects in foam and make moulds for casting in aluminium. Using a purpose built, small scale mobile foundry you will learn the basics of running a furnace for non-ferrous metal casting and make your own aluminum sculpture. 

With regards to the constantly evolving social and cultural politics that define specific, often civic spaces Virginia Hutchison works with a range of media, including text, film and performance and object making, to explore the context of these sites.  Virginia graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2004 with an MA in Sculpture and served on the board of directors at Glasgow Sculpture Studios.
