Group Celebrate Your Body: Golden Casting Session

Spend an evening with friends immortalising your bodies in gold, celebrating them together, and sharing a glass of prosecco!

Get your busts cast by your host Ellen, a talented Bristol artist who champions bodies (in all shapes and sizes) by casting them in gold. This studio is all about self-love and body confidence and you might have even already seen Every Body’s Story featured on the BBC!

This is a group experience and would make a wonderful, bonding experience for best friends, a hen party, a baby shower, or any other special occasion.

In this experience you will:

  • Connect with your body and its personal story through the therapeutic, ancient art of body casting
  • Experience this transformative and empowering process together as a group with your closest friends
  • See your body in an entirely new light as a work of art
  • Create a time capsule of your bodies and physical embodiments of a special moment in your lives

Your casts will be dried in the studio and painted brilliant gold. You will be able to collect your finished piece 2 weeks later so you can have it at home to display and treasure.


"Being cast by Ellen was more healing and formative than I could have imagined. It felt really beautiful to be able to hold the shape of my body in my hands once I had taken the cast off. I could feel all the strength and vulnerability in it at once." - Lydia

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

Each cast takes between 25-35 minutes to make. So allow around 40 minutes per person when scheduling your booking, depending on how many of you there will be.
