Goma Gallery of Modern Art. Saturday 18th and Saturday 25th November 2023 from 11:00 a.m., to 1pm.

Seiko Hayase is a multidisciplinary artist based in Cork. She was part of GOMA Waterford’s 2022 programme as the gallery’s Connect 5 Awardee with her show World In Between. GOMA is delighted to be welcoming her back as she hosts this workshop, which will be a fun and relaxed introduction to alginate casting.

Alginate casting is a quick-setting sculpting method that allows casts and moulds of the body to be easily made.

This workshop is built around the theme ‘Things and Hands’. Participants will be encouraged to use their imaginations when casting to make reproductions of their own hands and also objects that can be held in the hand.

All materials are provided and no experience is necessary!

The workshops will be held on two Saturdays over two separate weekends:

The cost of this workshop is subsidised allowing participants to take part for a total contribution fee of €10 per person.

Max number of participants: 12
