About the Course
Sculpt a fantastic fish using simple slab building techniques. Come and Sculpt a Terracotta clay fish. Through simple step by step instruction let your imagination run wild and create an amazing fantastic fish.
We will start the day creating your designs and looking at the technique of Frottage used by artist Max Ernst. Frottage is the use of rubbings to create texture; we will use these textures to inspire patterns on the surface of the fish. Once a simple idea and plan has been formulated we will transfer this to terracotta clay and create the basic fish shape. With a touch of imagination you will start modelling and sculpting surface pattern and texture, bringing to life your very own fantastic fish.
All abilities welcome!
