Programme Overview

Working directly in clay from the portrait model you will have the opportunity to make two, life size portrait heads throughout the week. This hands-on course is designed to broaden your observation skills and teach you modelling techniques for building clay heads. Considering the qualities of form and exploring ways to convey proportion, textures, and weight, you will develop an understanding of how to make an observational study of a clay head. Students will receive tuition both as a group and individually.

Your selected finished piece will be allowed to air dry for a number of weeks before being fired and made ready for you to collect. Materials are included in the cost of this course.
