Five weeks sculpture class aims to introduce to both beginners and more advanced students the wonders of using clay as a sculptural material giving a chance to explore a range of hand building techniques in order to create sculptural work. You will be encouraged to come with a subject idea and supported through your making to a final piece. Create sculptural artworks without an inner armature structure and learn how to structure your idea from inspiration to reality. Build three-dimensional ceramics sculptures using various techniques like pinching, coiling, slabbing and straightforward hand building will be used in conjunction with basic decorative finishes.
This class encourages personal development and has a strong emphasis on exploitation of clay. As the intent of this course is to produce sculptural work, you will be encouraged to involve the imaginary and be creative playing and developing your own way of creating an individual and vibrant piece of art.
Complete beginners are welcome, but we strongly recommend that you take the One Day Pottery Workshop before attending this class.
Clay, glazes, and firings are included.
