Inspiring & creative course in concrete casting

Spend a few inspiring hours on an inspiring & creative basic course in concrete casting. Susanna Zacke goes through everything you need to know to get started with concrete casting. With the right molds, it is easy to cast interior details such as dishes, pots, candle lanterns, garden tiles, table tops and birdbaths. Concrete is a fantastically durable and useful material that fits both indoors and outdoors. Susanna's concrete project usually focuses on furnishings and utensils, what she casts should be able to be used and fulfill a function. The course is full of inspiration, tips, ideas, creative solutions and creativity. Here's what you learn: - Where do I buy concrete and which variety is best? - How do I mix concrete and what consistency is right? - What can you use as a form? - What is reinforcement and when is it needed? - How long should concrete dry. - Can concrete be surface treated? During the course you get to cast your own dish, pots and candlesticks. After completing the course, you will definitely want to continue with this cast hobby. Concrete casting is creative, inspiring and suitable for all ages. It is just as exciting every time the concrete is to be taken out of the mold, no matter how many times you have done it before.

Additional information

Please note

Does your child want to join the workshop? Enter the code btng-7zw when booking and get a 50% discount for children up to 18 years. The workshop will be held in my garden which is filled with concrete projects. All material is included and I serve something easier to eat and drink. If you have your own molds that you want to bring and cast in, it works great. We are outdoors, so remember to dress practically. The concrete needs to dry / burn on site for at least 24 hours, which means that you can come back a few days later and remove the mold and pick up your concrete objects.

You'll learn

Blanda betong och få till rätt konsistens. - Gjuta dina egna krukor, ljusstakar och fat mm - De bästa formarna att gjuta i, ytbehandling, när det ska armeras och torktider.
