Sisterhood Body Casting Workshop

Join body casting artist Ellen Downes for this very special, one-off, first bust casting workshop at the beautiful Now Studio.

Your host Ellen, who runs Bristol body casting studio, Every Body’s Story, will introduce you to the basics of body casting and guide you through making a cast with someone you feel bonded in sisterhood with. You will be doing the cast of the person you come along with, so make sure you come along as a pair or a group of 3.

In this workshop you will…

  • Be introduced to the therapeutic and ancient art of body casting which can be a healing and ceremonial way of connecting to the body.
  • Have the chance to play with plaster, and learn to create a body cast as a pair or group
  • Have your own cast to take home with you to treasure, as a symbol of your friendship, love and connection with the person you made the cast with

This event is part of the Every Body's Story 10-part series running from March to July in Bristol. These events are run by and open to those who identify as women or non-binary. The series has been created for us to gather, share, celebrate and explore our connections to our bodies. If you have any questions, drop Ellen a DM at @everybodysstory or email her at
