Description

13th June - 16th June 2019

The 4-Day Portrait Course course aim to give you solid practical skills and an enthusiasm that you will take with you. I offer you my 36 years experience and my love of figurative sculpture.

These are not a typical sculpture courses where you are left to your own devices to figure things out and many people return year on year to develop their skills.

Portrait sculpture courses are practical, perception and anatomy based and designed to get you further towards understanding what you see. You will be learning the whole time.

Each studio session is crafted to help you uncover and learn sculpture techniques and sculpture skills. Tuition will be both to the group, but also working individually with you to tailor your learning to your own needs.

I hope you will leave brimming with as much knowledge as I can pass on with the confidence to successfully undertake a portrait commission.

Portrait Modelling. Making a good head in sculpture is very satisfying. Each studio session is crafted to help you uncover an understanding of the subtleties of the human form. This carefully structured 4-day sculpture class builds on your ability and offers you key techniques and protocols that will give you confidence. The masterclass is limited to 12 participants and suitable for professional as well as novice sculptors, as tuition will be individually tailored to suit your requirements.

Portrait Modelling. The portrait bust represents one of the most challenging tasks for the sculptor. The aim of the course is to train ways of seeing that develop perception of 3-D form. Using the portrait bust as the vehicle, you will uncover a complex understanding of the subtleties of the human architecture.

Throughout the course you will focus on method and procedure in a pragmatic approach that enables each stage of perception to be readily grasped.

  • Measuring and anatomical proportions:
    • Develop acute observation through stages of perception
    • Building an armature with different methods of construction
    • Going beyond knowledge of the human anatomy
    • Learning to close the gap between what is observed and what can be reproduced
  • Creating a likeness:
    • Working to commission
    • Bringing the clay to life
    • Knowing when to stop
    • Rescuing a disaster


A second course will run 8th - 11th August 2019
