An intensive course which teaches the techniques of building, carving and modelling clay. The participants will be taken through anatomy, form, texture and will develop an understanding of portraiture through sculptural expression. There will be emphasis on development of observational skills leading to learning of modelling a clay head. All tools and equipment will be provided. Sculptures will be fired in our kiln and can be collected 3-4 weeks after the workshop.
You will be given a detailed introduction to sculpting which would give you an idea about replicating intricate details of human anatomy onto clay and creating products applying these concepts. The course is divided into 8 sessions and the participants are free to use the studio facility for an hour after the class to finish their work.
