Islington Mill Art Academy Plaster-making Workshop

Join Islington Mill Art Academy for a beginner’s guide to working with plaster.

This workshop will be led by IMAA 2019 group member Patrick O’Donnell. Using traditional methods, still popular today, you will have the opportunity to learn and practice, a quick and easy way to make plaster forms  in all shapes and sizes. Patrick will provide basic materials but please wear old clothes or bring an apron or overalls. Please also bring a small pot (something like a yogurt pot), rubber gloves (essential if you have sensitive skin), a plastic spoon or two and, if you have one, an old paint brush that you no longer need for painting.

The workshop will be followed as usual by one of our Potluck Dinners, so please bring along a small dish of food to share if you are able.

IMAA is a free peer-led art school. It is open to anyone who wants to be an artist. Learning activities (workshops, artist talks and studio visits, group residencies and projects, crits and feedback sessions) are shared and led by the ideas and energy of current student-members. IMAA is not formally accredited; students choose to graduate when they feel ready to work more independently as artists.

Currently we meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays each month (with optional extra time for group projects). We encourage anyone interested in joining to attend an upcoming session to discover if it is the right approach for you. Please get in touch for details:
