Our previous Figure Sculpture course was such a success we just had to run another one!

Under the tutor Heather Burwell’s guidance, students will concentrate on developing the relationship between the figure and the clay material whilst considering shape and form, proportion, planes and the tactile quality and handling of clay.

Throughout the 6 week course we will be using the clay block system to learn how to build a torso to show movement using ‘BLT’ (bend, lean, turn). 

Also with the use of figurative images you will then go on to construct a seated or reclining pose whilst mastering the 3 P’s (position, proportion, planes).  

We will then focus on the detailing; head, hands, feet and consider mark marking and finishing the piece ready for firing. 

This course is suitable for beginners in a fun and relaxed environment with step by step guidance from the tutor.

All equipment, clay and firings are included in the price.
