Venue, Timing and Cost
Step-by-step guidance on how to set up and execute a portrait of convincing likeness in clay. We will cover the planes on the head, the clay and the use of tools and although time will not allow for actually finishing, a discussion of various patination techniques will take place. For reference we have a life model and a replica skull.
Day One - we work with a model, preparing the armature and modelling the skull. Exercises on individual features will also take place.
Day Two – we work with the same model and apply knowledge and experiences from Day One to rendering a likeness of our model, a young female.
This short course is suitable for experienced sculptors, as well as beginners. There will be a small charge for clay, but firing of the finished portrait is included.
Maximum 10 students
Refreshments: Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day.
Most students bring a packed lunch.
