Upcoming Workshops:

Sculpture in a Day: Soapstone Carving with Karen Alexander

Sun 28 July 2019

Create a small finished soapstone sculpture in this one day workshop. Soapstone is a soft easily carved stone with beautiful patterns and available in a variety of colours. You will be shown how to use rasps and files to reveal the hidden organic shapes and forms within. The final polishing is always a wonderful surprise as that reveals the beautiful colours and texture hidden within the stone.

$190 or book with a friend $340 ($170 each)

9:30 AM – 4:30 PM


$190.30* – $340.30

1 Day Figurative Sculpture in Clay with Ingrid Morley

Sunday 1 September 2019

Working directly in clay from a life model, students explore the body’s three-dimensional shape using the fundamental principals of sculpture –  how to observe form and obtain structural integrity.

After initial warm up exercises, students touch on central aspects of classical figurative sculpture to further their individual investigations – proportion, composition, rhythm, negative space, weights and balances and the influence of light.

Students will learn the technical aspects of working with clay – texture and tools and methods of finishing a work in clay will be discussed.

The course is designed for beginners to advanced students. Numbers are limited.

$210 (all materials, model fees and GST included)

9:30 AM – 5:00 PM
