This course covers the design and build of clay animal figures for kiln firing. The emphasis is on style development and construction for firing. We'll cover contemporary approaches including basic to advanced construction, modelling and texturing techniques.
Working from a model, you’ll be coached in the art of clay modelling to scale. We can make the whole process a lot easier with hints, tips and instruction. Although we’ll be taking you through classical approaches we don’t mind if your piece ends up more “Homar” than human.
Got a handle on it? Don’t stop there.
