Event description:

Participants will investigate the process of creating a three-dimensional copy of a living human body. Participants will use their own or a parent / friend’s body parts as a model to make casts with plaster bandage. This method of life-casting allows creation of exact portraits and body reproduction, through the use of mold-making techniques.
