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 Ingrid Morley
Term l – 2019 Wired! Working with the life figure:
“The experience I have as a sculptor, my artistic practice and my teaching experience come together in my passion for the enduring relationship of learning and encountering the ongoing possibilities present between the artist and the life model. Discover how poetry and engineering, using the most complex form in nature – the human body, continues to inspire generations of artists. Experience this unique communication whilst observing the model from life for the development of a 3D work.” Ingrid Morley
Learn and develop the basic principals of sculpture, using rhythm negative space, and composition to make a sculpture in wire, or use your wire work to act as an armature for modelling in clay – to mould and cast in plaster.
With playful exercises explore the possibilities of wire and clay as material for sculpture, with the flexibility of working with mixed media. The basics of tool handling, clay management, wire techniques, structure and stability and texture will be discussed and explored. Your final work will be a series in wire, wire and air-dried clay, wood and plaster or a traditional modelled work in clay, moulded and cast in plaster. The course provides a basic platform for intermediate students with the scope for experienced students to further develop their skills.
8 week term (5 sessions with a life model), 10am – 4pm.
