Our workshop classes run for ten weeks with students attending a three-hour workshop at their preferred time. You can start on any term throughout the year. These workshops are for all skill levels and aim to develop your knowledge and understanding of all aspects of creating sculpture in a range of media. Those new to sculpture will learn alongside other students and are offered a structured, 10-week program learning the basics of clay modelling, plaster-casting and colouring to produce their own finished sculpture. More advanced students will develop their techniques and are encouraged to drive their own projects with the guidance of their teacher. Everyone is invited to encounter a unique artistic experience in an inspiring studio space!
Life Study with guest teacher Jenny Pollak
Finding your poetic voice (Life Study Workshop) will guide both the beginner and the more experienced student through the processes involved in creating a finished, fired ceramic work from the life model. The course will include learning how to model a figure without an armature, and the techniques involved in hollowing the work prior to firing.
Jenny will be encouraging her students to push their work beyond a merely faithful representation of the model and to explore how they might develop a more personal ‘language’ or means of expression by paying close attention to the subject and their responses to it. This exploration will be encouraged by looking at the work of the great figure sculptors past and present. Drawing will be used as a warm up exercise and to begin the process of working towards discovering a more personal language.
Some prior experience with drawing from the life model will be an advantage
