Description

The Figure : Making and Meaning

An opportunity to develop both your technical ability in clay modelling and creative thinking in sculpture.

Introductory Lecture and powerpoint presentation on Wednesday 25th October evening from 7 - 9 pm

Kenny Hunter will discuss and open up the narrative possibilities of the figure by looking at both historical precedents and contemporary examples. This will be followed by a discussion with the artist and the foundry directors over a glass of wine when questions about making and process can be addressed. This dialogue will be supported by a divergent display of sculpture in the foundry.


Clay Modelling Workshops Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th October 10 - 4 pm

In response to this lecture the students will then be invited to develop their own research and initial sketches prior to arriving at the foundry for a two-day clay workshop which will be held over the following weekend.

As a student of this workshop you will not only be able to increase your technical skills but also your creative thinking. In discussion with Kenny you will be encouraged to develop your own response to the figure and how meaning can be embedded in the artwork through subject, scale, surface and materials. The weekend will begin with a morning session assessing the students initial ideas followed by armature building. The rest of the weekend will taken up by the development of your work in clay with the support of the tutor.

It is our intention to extend this workshop over a second weekend allowing students the opportunity to further develop their work if required. Alternatively, if the student feels happy with the work after the first weekend they can either opt out at this stage or continue to do a second weekend with a new idea.
