In this workshop participants will be introduced to basic techniques on how to sculpt a relief to create an optical illusion. The advantage of working with clay to learn to sculpt a bas-relief is that the clay allows the participant to not just carve into the clay to create the relief, but also to be able to add material as needed.The participant will sculpt from a slab of clay 30 x 40 cm and 3.5 cm thick.

There will be a different theme for each workshop. A surrealist décor with props and a live model will be staged, to inspire the participants to compose and sculpt their bas-relief.

This is an opportunity to create your own miniature mural. Some drawing skill is helpful, but not necessary.  This workshop is ideal for the painter who wants to increase their understanding of depth and optical illusion, and to create their own relief clay canvas.

Maximum 9 students for the class.

This is a 12 hour weekend workshop. Please bring your lunch

Cost: registration fee $380. + GST (includes clay )

In this workshop participants will learn how to build - with the help of an armature - a well proportioned structure, using their own hand as the model.

We will also cover how the muscles and tendons of the hands connect through the forearm to give it the strength and agility that defines its dexterity. These sculptures will not be kiln-fired; participants will be able to take their piece home to continue their studies.

Maximum 10 students for the class.
