About this experience

This is a 2-hour workshop introducing and working with Jesmonite as well as photo papers.

Have fun creating pots, trays, holders or canvas artwork using eco-friendly Jesmonite. You can choose to make one holder. Materials and tools are provided for you use during the workshop.

Jesmonite can be used to replicate the appearance and texture of any surface finish, and even the finest of detail. It can mimic the appearance of materials such as stone, wood, leather and fabric. It is strong and durable, can be pigmented to any colour and used to create decorative surface effects.

It is often used as lightweight alternative to stone and concrete. It has become an increasingly popular material widely used by artists, designers and prop-makers. Jesmonite is a brand name for a group of products that have a gypsum base and a water based acrylic resin making it kinder to the environment than other resins.

A photogram is a photographic image made without a camera. It is created by placing objects directly onto the surface of a light-sensitive material such as a photographic paper and then exposing it to light.

After that, the photo paper is treated with developer, stop bath and fixer chemicals to develop the image. The areas of the paper that receive light when exposed appear dark and the parts that do not receive any light appear lighter.

You can place your own objects on the photo paper during the creation.
