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!
Alternatively, you can call the office to enquire and book on 02 9565 4851.

Term 1 2021: The Self Portrait with Ingrid Morley
Tuesdays: 2 February – 30 March (9 weeks)
10:00am – 4:00pm
Finding 3D form, not necessarily representative, from the mystery of the self image has held a powerful place in art history. Exploring and questioning ideas about identity has been expressed throughout time in different periods i.e.from the Renaissance (Bernini), German expressionists (Käthe Kollwitz) and the painter Frida Carlo.
Finding the basic 3D structure in clay through observation from your mirror image, prepare and construct an armature for your self-portrait. Set yourself up for your self-portrait, control light and collect essential information to inform your work – including the use of tools. Form up and complete a self portrait in clay.
Choosing to work with or without an armature is a choice, as you can work in relief (2D) or free standing in 3D. This choice can be discussed with Ingrid as your final work can either be kiln fired or cast in plaster or wax from a plaster mould.
Students must supply their own mirror.
