Pregnant Belly Casting
When you are pregnant you truly understand the remarkable capacity of the body to shift and transform. Many women take photos to commemorate this unique period when you are still fused with your baby.
Plaster casting is a beautiful and fun way to celebrate the shape that you have acquired after months of your baby growing inside you.
Come spend an hour or two in a sunny home studio in a historic loft downtown building, enjoy a warm drink and let us cast your belly. Afterward you can decorate it, leave it as is and mount it in a frame or directly on a wall.
We invite you to couple the casting with a one hour prenatal Thai Yoga massage with a certified practitioner in the same space the hour prior to casting.
