About the Course

The 4-Day Portrait Course aims to give you solid practical skills and an enthusiasm that you will take with you. I offer you my 36 years experience and my love of figurative sculpture.

These are not a typical sculpture courses where you are left to your own devices to figure things out and many people return year on year to develop their skills.

Portrait sculpture courses are practical, perception and anatomy based and designed to get you further towards understanding what you see. You will be learning the whole time.

Each studio session is crafted to help you uncover and learn sculpture techniques and sculpture skills. Tuition will be both to the group, but also working individually with you to tailor your learning to your own needs.

I hope you will leave brimming with as much knowledge as I can pass on with the confidence to successfully undertake a portrait commission.

Maximum number of participants is 12.
