Programme Overview

Sculpting in clay directly from the nude life model, this hand on course is designed to broaden your observation skills and teach you clay modelling techniques. Considering the qualities of form and exploring ways to convey mass and proportions, you will develop an understanding of how to render the human form three dimensionally. You will learn how to use the tools and equipment required for figurative sculpture, including learning the hollowing out process. You will receive tuition both as a group and individually. By the end of the week you will have completed at least two pieces of sculpture and prepared one for the kiln. Students will leave the course with pieces of work ready to be fired. Details of where they can fire their work in Glasgow will be provided. All materials are included.
