Term Dates 2021
Term 4 (7-week term): Monday 1 November – Saturday 18 December
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!
Term 4 workshop bookings are NOW OPEN (see below). Life Study bookings are also OPEN, please scroll down – limited places available.
Term Fees (7-week term)
Special price: $405.30

Learn the principals of modelling the figure in clay! Designed to develop the student’s understanding of the form and structure of the human body, this course will be an intensive life study focusing on human anatomy and observation.
Working from a model in a standing pose for seven weeks, students will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge of anatomy, the rhythms and movable masses of the body, proportion and language of sculptural form. Students will develop skills in armature building, clay modelling and training of the observational eye. In order to have optimal time with a model, this course is intended as an intensive life study only, not to complete a finished sculpture.
Students who would like to translate their work into a cast can do so by enrolling in a workshop class at the Tom Bass Studio. Suitable for beginners through to advanced levels, this course will teach the foundations of the classical figure in sculpture.
Fees include GST as well as all basic materials (except stone) and model fees. Classes are small – minimum 6 students, maximum 12. We reserve the right to cancel a class if student enrolments are below 6.
Missed classes must be made up within the term. A cancellation fee will apply for cancelled classes.
