Life sculpture in clay: weekend courses


About the Course

You will sculpt a gesture study in water-based clay, using direct observation of a life model. Poppy will provide you with one-on-one critique and, as a group, you will cover a range of topics including working from life, setting a pose, relating the armature, and how to establish proportions.

Minimum 3 students required, maximum 5.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Life model and all materials provided. Hardwood modelling tools on loan for those without their own, and a “take home” armature so that you can continue sculpting at home.

Lunch can be provided upon request.

On reopening after Lockdown, my main priority is to ensure the wellbeing of the life-model and course participants. To this end, I am currently implementing the following measures to keep the studio safe:

- Deep cleaning prior to each workshop.
- Model stands and “take-home” armatures disinfected.
- Prepared and disinfected 3kg bags of water-based clay.
- Prepared and disinfected individual “snack bags” ft. tea, coffee, fruit, cereal bars etc.
- Appropriate distance between students' and model’s stands.
