Portrait Head in Clay - Saturday workshops, Sussex Sculpture Studios


Portrait Head in Clay, Sussex Sculpture Studios, Billingshurst, West Sussex

Six Saturdays: Oct 27, Nov 3, 10, 17, 24, Dec 1, 10-4pm, £426 (includes materials and firing)

Tutor: Hazel Reeves MRBS SWA FRSA

Have you ever wanted to capture someone’s face or expression in a sculpture? Working a portrait in clay from a live model is a really rewarding experience.  On the first day you will start by examining the model and exploring the structure of the head, building a small portrait in clay. This learning will then be used to start the development of a life-size portrait on an armature. You will continue to work on this with the model for the next three and a half days. For those less experienced, the final morning will be spent learning how to hollow-out the portrait in readiness for firing. This course will be taught in a way suitable for all levels of experience – from beginners to the advanced. Course maximum: 8.

The Sussex Sculpture Studios are right by Billingshurst station, which is on the mainline to London Victoria.
