A Bump Casting project with Mums in Mind
From March to May, there is something exciting happening here at The Edinburgh Casting Studio. We are launching a creative project involving Mums and Mums-to-be in Edinburgh, exploring pregnancies through Body Casting and interviews.
It is not too late to join in with this project, contact us to secure a Bumps of Edinburgh casting session.
What’s required from mums? We know it’s a busy time for mums and soon-to-be-mums right now, so we hope to make it as easy and stress-free as possible!
- 1hr Casting appointment in our studio: 45 mins for the casting, and 15 mins short discussion
£60 cost towards some of materials. (Bump Castings are usually around £170. For this project, we will not be charging for our time in order to keep the cost as affordable as possible. The bump castings will need to fit around our daily casting appointments, so spaces are limited)
What makes Bumps of Edinburgh interesting?
The project will be all about pregnancy and the amazing strength of women who experience this totally unique time in their lives. At the end of every Bump Casting session, we will be holding short discussions with each Mum/Mum-to-be, to create an opportunity for women to share their experiences, opinions and thoughts of what it is like to be pregnant in Edinburgh.
These will be anonymous interviews and it is completely up to each Mum to share what they are comfortable with. We feel that it could be a wonderful archive of pregnancy, what being and becoming a mum means in Edinburgh, from the people who understand it best. We want this to tell the stories of the inspiring women of Edinburgh- whether joyous, humorous or challenging.
In return for your contribution to the project, you will have your own Bump Sculpture cast in Stone. Our Body Castings are the ‘High Detail’ variety, which means unlike DIY mod-roc Bumps, our sculptures capture perfect skin details and minute textures with incredible accuracy. Your Bump sculpture will also be finished, sealed and affixed with an internal chain suitable for wall-hanging. We really feel this project will provide something honest, insightful and beautiful, and could be really exciting for Edinburgh. Based on the overwhelming response so far, we think this project will be incredibly popular, so if you are interested please let us know as soon as possible.

Please contact us to confirm your interest as soon as possible as we have limited availability. We need your full name, due date, email address and telephone number. We will call you to arrange a suitable date, beginning with those mums who are due soonest!
