Two day introduction to portrait sculpture course at Chillington Hall



This two day 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. We use air drying clay so you may take your portrait sculpture home at the end of the course (this clay is suitable for indoors only).

What's included in the price?

All materials and us of tools are included. Light refreshments will be available throughout the course but please bring a packed lunch. There is free parking on site.
