You will work on a gesture study in water based clay, using direct observation of a life model. I will provide you with one-on-one critique and, as a group, we will cover a range of topics including: working from life, relating the armature, setting a pose, sculptural truths, structural highway and how to establish proportions.
Minimum 2 students, maximum 4.
All abilities welcome.
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 fee, lunch and all materials will be provided. Hardwood modelling tools on loan for those without their own, and a “take home” armature so that you can continue sculpting at home.

What a great day! I was bought this day as a present and had no experience of sculpture, nor indeed art since leaving school some 45 years ago, so I was to say the least, most apprehensive.
Poppy is so passionate about her subject that her enthusiasm just washes over you and after some blunders on my part, I felt that I actually created something that had demonstrable form and shape. Certainly I needn't have worried about my lack of skill, Poppy's encouragement makes up for that in spades.
The studio is in a lovely setting and we had a very nice lunch shared with another one of the craftspeople (another great guy) from this wonderful estate of art and craft.
Excellent value for money, perfect for those with talent who want to step up a gear, but equally supportive of novices to 'have a go'.
On the other hand, take a look at the superb work Poppy produces for sale and by commissions, it's truly exceptional and foretells of the heady heights for which she is clearly destined - get a lesson now before she is too much in demand!
