I had my first meeting with Sarah and Steve at Meltdowns Foundry in Ramsgate and objective 1 was to actually locate the place.
We agreed that the work will be done over the summer, before which I need to make a list of 10 questions that will inform the research experiments: e.g. What happens to the paper if it is treated with different media – e.g. ink, acetone, wax, nothing …? It is going to be a professional development and learning opportunity all round.
Sarah and Steve will advise on and source the resin and other materials, though part of my homework is to make a small, mdf box as a mould. It will be really good to get my head into 3-D processes again!
