Half life size figures

Capturing the essence of a pose using scale measurements taken with calipers, to create a life size or half life size figure.  Depending on the complexity of the pose, we work either in air drying clay that can be allowed to dry without firing or casting, or for more complex poses we create an armature and work over it in clay.  Poses with armatures will need to be cast at an additional cost.

Cost includes tuition, model, and all equipment required during the course.  Clay, some armatures and casting are an additional cost.

INTENSIVE SCULPTURE WEEK                  
5th - 9th MARCH 2018
Life Size Head sculpt in air drying clay


10am - 2.30pm

£275.00


We welcome Julian Lewis for the first time at The Sculpture Studio as our model for this class, an experienced male model with a fantastic face to sculpt.

I provide all the equipment required and costs include the model, an armature, and a bag of air drying clay, plus a metal base.  We use air drying clay which means your sculpt can dry out and be painted to look like bronze.  This avoids the costs of moulding and casting your piece for students who are beginners and want to try the process.  However we can provide moulding and casting at an additional cost if you are interested.

Tea and coffee is  provided and you can choose to either bring lunch with you or have lunch at the Lavender Bakehouse opposite the Studio.

There are some very lovely B&B's and hotels locally if you are travelling some distance.

Please email if you have any queries regarding the course.

TUESDAY 11 WK FIGURATIVE CLASS

COMMENCING 20th MARCH 2018 - please see dates for half terms and breaks when I am away teaching.

1/3 or 1/2 life size figure sculpt with our regular model Fra


£300.00


Regulars will notice that this is an 11 week course rather than the usual 10 week, which is why it has increased from £275.00.  We will be using our lovely model Fra and finding a new intersting pose to attempt.

I provide all the equipment required and costs include the model, a board, and a bag of air drying clay.  We use air drying clay which means your sculpt can dry out on the board and be painted to look like bronze.  This avoids the costs of moulding and casting your piece for students who are beginners and want to try the process.  However we can provide moulding and casting at an additional cost if you are interested.

Tea and coffee and biscuits are provided.

Please email if you have any queries regarding the course.

‘I thought the weekend was fantastic - I've ordered more clay and was able to buy the stone slabs that I thought were useful to put the finished sculpture onto.  She is proudly sitting in the Studio.’
