Walking Group - Week 10

Our walking group are becoming familiar faces at The Whisky Bond; home of the Glasgow Sculpture Studios.

Last week they went there for a plaster-casting workshop with Alys Owen, one of the studio holders at GSS. First the group were met by Rosie who introduced the current exhibition of work by Iman Issa, and presented them with some objects to photograph.

They were then joined by Alys who took the group to the plaster-casting room and demonstrated some simple casting techniques using alginate and plaster. Everyone had a go and a good time making a variety of objects.

After the workshop, the group had a walk along the canal and back into town before going their separate ways.

Next week the group will join Joanna Peace for another look at the exhibition, this time focusing on the text elements of the work and taking part in a writing workshop.
