A two day course on Sculpting the Figure, 10am-4pm both days.
Friday February 7th and Saturday February 8th 2020.
The class will focus on creating a personal response in sculpture with reference to a model, with the possibility of the work being hollowed out and being made ready to fire. Students will be enabled to create an individual, expressive and experimental response in clay, using charcoal drawings and quickly made maquettes for planning and to help students leap from thinking in two to three dimensions. Techniques include modelling, building, hollowing, joining, refining and finishing.
