Event description

Description

Sculpting a portrait in clay can be a very rewarding experience. This course will explore how to observe heads – how to see their differences and similarities, and in turn learn how to translate this understanding into a sculpture which captures a likeness of the sitter. During the five days a life-sized clay portrait of a live sitter will be built on an armature, then prepared for firing. This concentrated modelling will be interspersed with fun exercises - with clay and without - to help train up the eye and hands. Course fee includes most materials but please bring an A4 sketchpad and drawing implement (pencil, pen etc). This course will be taught in a way suitable for those with experience of sculpting in clay and those new to it. Course fee includes materials. Firing is not included, however, advice on how to prepare the piece for firing and where to get the piece fired (at a kiln/pottery) will be shared during the course.
