Working from a model and expressing through clay. People of all abilities including newcomers welcome. The aim of the workshop is to create something with a resemblance to the human figure – whether abstract or vaguely representative. Prior to the model’s arrival the tutor will commence with a short demonstration on how to build the clay model with firing in mind ( so as not to explode in the kiln) and will discuss the type of clay being used to negate the use of an armature. The tutor will then offer support and advise throughout the clay modelling from life session. Pieces will be dried out completely and then fired ready for collection approximately 4-6 weeks later. Final pieces can be kept indoors or outdoors. Some life drawing experience is desirable though not totally essential. Group size is approximately 10-12 people max.
