Programme Overview

Please note that our next programme of courses for Spring-Summer 2018 will be available from March 2018.


This class started on the first week of October. It is now too late to join it.

Sculpting in clay directly from the nude life model (male and female), this hands-on course is designed to broaden your observational and practical skills and teach you various handbuilding techniques. Considering the qualities of form and exploring ways to convey body mass and proportions, you will develop an understanding of how to accurately render the human form three dimensionally. You will receive instruction both as a group and individually, covering surface treatment techniques, painting and finishing, as well as guidance on firing.

This class is suitable for a wide variety of students, from beginner to more experienced sculptors.

Each student may select one piece each term to be fired.
