Exploring Sculpting in Polymer Clay with Sarah Dean - Tues 18 October - 6 December 7 - 9pm Term 3
160.00 - 180.00
This 8 week course is designed as an exploration into sculpting in Polymer Clay. Participants will have a choice of creating an animal or a self-portrait.
Polymer Clay is a heat curing form of clay and much like other clay, uses an additive method to construct desired forms. Unlike traditional clay it relies on warmth from the sculptor’s hands to make it malleable and does not dry out or shrink.
Ideal for anyone interested in sculpting with no prior experience.
Week 1: Introductions and introduction to materials. Choosing an animal or human head. Drawing ideas, to work out pose and size etc. Creating structure with wire and tin foil. Or choosing a mirror for a self portrait and create underlying structure out of tinfoil.
Week 2: Finish building the structure, start getting to know the clay and build up form.
Week 3-4: Build up form, look at the anatomy of animals.
Week 5-: Look at textures, spend some time creating textures, as many as we can. Applying the textures and details to the animal sculptures. working on details.
Week 6-8: Finish up or take your time - sculptures do not have to be finished in a single term if you prefer to take your pace.
The finished sculptures will be cooked by the tutor so they can be finished with acrylic paint.
