This course will enable you to create a standing figure (approx. 50cm tall), with an internal armature. While working on the figure as a whole, each class will focus on a different body part, looking at the structure and anatomy of the human form. Working in water based clay, you will learn to capture gesture and proportion as well as use light and shadow to understand form and get a true likeness of the model. Each week you will work with access to a life model.
Dependent on interest at the end of the course, those who wish to cast a ‘hardcopy’ fragment of their figure in plaster can do so in our optional Moulding weekend taking place on 28th and 29th March. During the weekend, you will mould and cast a piece of your sculpture into plaster to create a wall-mounted fragment or piece mounted on a base. This optional weekend course carries an additional cost.
