Sculpting Birds with Paper Clay | 2 Days

Two intensive days of demonstrations and making that will cover fundamental handbuilding and modelling skills. Using ‘birds’ as a theme you will be shown ways to make exciting, dynamic and lively versions of the bird. Capturing the essence of the creature will be emphasised throughout the workshop..

Working practically with hollowed forms, coiling, slabbing, dowelling and coloured slips, Jayne will help you to design and make a bird sculpture to either take home or that can be left to be *fired at The StudioNo solid modelling is used, all pieces are constructed hollow occasionally adopting a simple external armature, allowing you to work more effectively and with more immediacy. Electric heat guns and the use of stoneware paper clay increase the possibility of faster working and a more spontaneous approach to interpretation.

*additional firing costs apply

Course is suitable for all levels of ability.

Items to bring: Photographs/images/drawings of birds, towel, apron, notepad, pen, means of getting your finished work home (e.g. cardboard crate) Please bring a packed Lunch.
