Celebrate your body: Have your torso cast in gold

Curious to see your body from a fresh perspective? What better way to celebrate it than immortalising it in gold…

Gift yourself the ultimate act of self-love. Get your torso cast by a talented Bristol artist who champions women's bodies by casting them in gold. (You might have already seen Every Body’s Story featured on the BBC!) If you're feeling generous, gift this feel-good experience for your friend, sister or partner too.

You’ll be given the opportunity to:

  • Connect with your body and its story through the therapeutic, ancient art of body casting. Experience this transformative and empowering process for yourself in a private setting.

  • See your form from a whole new 3D perspective. Create a time capsule of your body and physical embodiment of a special moment in your life.

  • Honour your body and treasure your cast. Your cast is a celebration of your body to display and treasure. It's yours and it's beautiful.

How body casting works:

First, you'll apply moisturising oils to your torso. Next, plaster bandages are soaked in warm water and applied to your skin layer by layer. It takes about 20 minutes to apply the plaster bandage and 15 minutes for the cast to set. The cast lifts from the skin surprisingly smoothly (that’s what the oil’s for!).

The golden touch:

Once your cast has dried it will then be finished and painted gold. It can be a standing statue, or you can select for mounting twine will be attached so you can hang your cast on the wall if you choose. Collect your cast from the studio from one week after the casting session.

Haven't already booked? Let these glowing reviews speak for themselves:

"Being cast gave me the space to be still. When the plaster was taken off, I felt strangely peaceful. It felt like a release, a shedding of a moment in time." - Rhiannon

“The process helped me to love my body again, my cast now hangs proudly above my bed!” - Elle

“Being cast by Ellen was such a pleasure and I felt confident and soothed for weeks to come.” - Rose
