Description

The Figure : Making and Meaning 2

with sculptor Kenny Hunter

Kenny will be leading a second course on the narrative possibilities of the Figure in Sculpture at Powderhall Bronze in April. This will again be an opportunity to develop your technical ability in clay modelling and creative thinking in figurative sculpture.

Introductory Talk & power point Presentation

on Wednesday 11th April from 7-9pm

Kenny will build upon his previous talk to discuss more diverse approaches to the figure in sculpture. The talk will be followed by conversation with the foundry directors over a glass of wine when questions about making and process can be addressed. Students will be invited to do some research to decide upon a pose for their work and provide initial sketches / ideas prior to the weekend clay workshops.

Two-day clay workshop will be held on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of April from 10 – 4pm

In discussion with Kenny and fellow students you will be encouraged to develop your own response to the figure and learn how meaning can be embedded in the artwork through subject, scale, surface and materials. The weekend will begin with a morning session assessing initial ideas followed by armature building. The rest of the weekend will taken up with the development of your work in clay with the support of the tutor.

This is a complete course, so don’t worry if you did not attend the first course.

Places are limited to 10 and the course is open to beginners and experienced sculptors.

All materials will be provided and there is a fully equipped tea room with tea, coffee & refreshments.

There will be a 15% discount on Foundry Services for course students.
