Sculpt the figure in clay over two days. Create a full length figure sculpture, using a life model.
After a short session of drawing the figure to familiarise yourself with the flow of shapes and the gesture of the pose, participants will create a clay figure in local St Agnes clay on an armature prepared in advance to the measurements of the model.
Over two days in the calm and quiet of the Potager studio we will cover the basics of anatomy, balance and gesture in the figure sculpture. Participants will be introduced to techniques for creating surface texture and methods for approaching the portrait, hands and feet.
Breaks will be taken in the beautiful garden. The workshop will run from 10am-4pm including an hour for lunch, which participants can bring or purchase from the cafe.
All materials, equipment and model fees are included in the price.
This workshop would suit any participant at any level of experience, but would especially appeal to those with some background in life drawing. The workshop is wheelchair accessible
