An introduction to portrait sculpture

modelling a classical portrait
X

Description

This course introduces the fundamental skills needed to create a portrait in clay. We will cover the techniques of working with clay and best use of different tools along with the principles of proportion, structure and anatomy.

We use existing portrait busts to work from so that everyone can get up close to study or feel form and take measurements, which is a traditional, and very effective, learning practice. The course is taught by Miranda, a professional figurative sculptor and trained tutor with over 20 years experience.

You may take your portrait sculpture home at the end of the course or leave it to be fired and collect it later.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
