Figurative sculpture from the life model


About the Course

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.
