Come and experience working in Half Acre Studios, run by artist and tutors Sam Halstead and Phoebe Stannard. Boasting a bespoke sculpture, drawing and print studio, surrounded by a lush sculpture garden at the top of picturesque Boscastle, a harbour village on the North Cornish coast.
Drawing directly from the model in the studio on the first day, students will over the course of a week develop these drawings into sculptural forms. First working in modelling wax then Ciment Fondu to create 2 pieces. Armature making skills will also be included. Students will gain a deeper understanding of anatomy, movement memory and imagination, allowing for a more informed use of expressive modelling skills.
