This intensive online course is designed for those who always wanted to sculpt and it is an introduction to understand shape, volume and drawing in order to create a head in clay.
From absolute beginners.
Online courses in Sculpture are taught on a one to one basis in a form of live demonstrations according to the skills and knowledge that each individual wishes to achieve at the end. It’s not a pre recorded lesson as I will practically demonstrate making on the day and cover questions and difficulties that you have met while making a 3D object at you own time. It’s an excellent course both for people with some experience in sculpture or starting from scratch. Passion is a necessary element for any new to sculpture student as generally sculpture involves a lot of slow processes to get a finished piece and there is some frustration when handling materials for the first time. Financially this course is cheaper and you will not need to move from your own home. It will be advised to work between the lessons and bring work done for discussion and corrections every week.
About the tutor:

I had a fantastic introductory lesson, which I did along with my mother. Danae was brilliant. Its amazing how much we learned in one hour! Due to Covid, we had to use Zoom - but it worked so well! Thanks Danae - I'm definitely hooked thanks to you! Very much recommended for anyone!
I am 76 and was given this first one hour course for my birthday. My son, aged 50, and I spent one of the most relaxing and enjoyable hours. Danae was so patient and observant through every step and kindly put us right on many points. An amazing teacher. Thank you very much Danae.
I can highly recommend Danae, the course succeeded my expectations. We discussed via email what I’d like learn but I have come away learning much much more. Its was clear she had spent time constructing the course to meet my needs and she went through each step methodically and concisely. She welcomed discussion and questions at every point. No question was too dumb to ask ! Her enthusiasm for her subject shone through and it is infectious. I have come away not only with knowledge but feeling very inspired to develop my sculpting and drawing further.
