A session of guided casting workshop is arranged for us in this module. As mentioned earlier that we knew at an early stage on what we wanted to focus on, this narrowed down our casting mould option during the workshop.
The clay mixture were done in the workshop. When they were ready, we brought the clay back to the site, which fortunately was nearby and started moulding the textures that we want to record.
Here are the variety of molds that we made:
We pressed the clay onto these areas to make a negative of them:
Here’s an episode: As we were casting our mould on different area, a man who was observing our activity stops one of us and inquire about our action. We explained to him briefly. He told us that our actions in preserving the site has made his day.
Lesson learn: Who knew small action could brighten a person’s day!? “)
No regrets choosing this project! 🙂
