Breaking the Mould

Saturday 23rd September 2017, 11:30

Please note this is a drop in event – please pop by between 11:30 – 14:30 to get creative!

Workshop description

FORMcard is a handy pocket sized card of meltable bio-plastic. It can be melted down in a simple cup of hot water to make adaptations and modifications to existing off the shelf toys and building blocks.

In this workshop Peter Marigold, creator of FORMcard, will be demonstrating how to make both removable and permanent modifications to items adding organic and hand made flourishes to otherwise factory-produced parts. As FORMcards can actually fuse onto plastics, he will also show how to use them to fix broken items and for more advanced participants will also demonstrate how to make quick simple moulds to replicate plastic parts instantly.

What experience do I need?

No previous experience needed – this workshop is aimed at both adults and children.

Who will be teaching me?
