Using a highly student centred and fresh approach,
our courses are designed to suit everyone whether
you’re a beginner, experienced, or a professional.
All our courses include DEC and the School’s unique
approach to clay application. At the end of the
workshop, students leave with their clay sculpture.
An inspirational approach that enables you to achieve a sculpture way beyond your expectations. Working with a life model, students are introduced to anatomy and discover the power of Dynamic Curves, proportion, and balance in the human form.
Using a life model, you will learn how to use photography and measurement to create a superb portrait sculpture. Our system reveals a unique way to produce a photographic likeness every time – making your aspirations attainable and enjoyable.
Through the use of direct proportion and composition, you will create a beautifully balanced and convincing animal sculpture. Discover fascinating techniques and skills for creating great surface textures such as fur.
A masterclass for the experienced sculptor. Using our unique methods you will learn how to breathe life and energy into a figure ‘in motion’ or ‘contra-posto’. The design of your armature, plus an understanding of DEC will enhance your skills to the next level, along with your increased anatomical knowledge gained during this exciting workshop.
This workshop is tremendous fun which makes these difficult aspects of the human figure achievable and no longer daunting. Using proportional anatomy and design, you will create individual features like eyes, ears, feet, and hands that are truly realistic.
In our strive to offer an extensive sculpture education, we also provide courses that require other specialist skills, such as bronze casting, moulding and casting, patination or body-casting. On these occasions we draw on the expertise of professionals whose skill and knowledge is superb, and we’re not ashamed to say, greater than ours!
