COURSE DESCRIPTION: Relief sculpture is a wonderful meeting of drawing and sculpture, it is a wholly imaginary way to define space and perspective. Many examples of high and low relief will be studied to inspire your personal work. Students are encouraged to bring ideas and drawings to work from and explore further. We also have the beautiful gardens and studios for you to work from if you are in need of inspiration. We will work in clay, plaster and wax.

Materials included in the cost are clay, modelling wax and casting plaster. More can be purchased if needed.

We will limit numbers to a maximum of 10 students to allow lots of space and individual tuition. Messy clothes advised.

We will be working as safely as possible, following government advice, with hand wash stations and sanitiser available. Tutor has an up to date DBS check.

​Adults, all abilities welcome.
