This masterclass workshop is a unique opportunity for artists to hone and develop their knowledge around the sculptural processes and creative potentials of mould-making with artist Siobhán McGibbon.
Participants will be introduced to the various stages of mould making, and basic and advanced techniques will be demonstrated and discussed. This includes teaching in the use of silicone rubber and developing small and large-scale moulds, as well as practical advice on materials and where to buy them. The workshop will be tailored around your specific artistic interests, so early registration is essential.
Dr Siobhan McGibbon is a Visual Artist & World-builder with a transdisciplinary practice. Her expression mutates, merging sculpture, animation, drawing, permaculture & participatory installations.
McGibbon created the world of Xenophon (2015) with writer Maeve O’Lynn to query post-Anthropocene futures. The world unfolds with each body of work, collaborating with practitioners in specific fields to build the narrative.
Xenophon is activated in multiple contexts; galleries, labs, gardens, and site-specific & virtual interventions. Including; Leitrim Sculpture Centre (2021), Sirius Arts Centre (2019), Triskel Arts Centre (2018), The Science Gallery (2017), Tulca (2017), The LAB (2017), Millennium Court Arts Centre (2016) and Galway city museum (2015).
