Portrait Sculpture Masterclass

Portrait Sculpture Masterclass

In this masterclass you will spend three days working from a live model to study the art of clay portrait sculpture. At the end of the course you will have produced a life-size sculpture from quality handbuilding clay and prepared it for firing into ceramic. When fired your sculpture will be suitable for outdoor display.

We’ll start by making smaller heads, focus intently on the subject and learning to see the underlying structure, working quickly and studying the model at different angles. You’ll discover one of the fascinating aspects of figurative art- a figure is not merely a likeness, there’s some of yourself in there too. Whether it’s how you handle the clay or where you choose to elaborate and edit, it’s quite astonishing.

The process becomes more nuanced as we look at details and character. The raising of an eyebrow or the line of a mouth can dramatically affect the expressive qualities of a portrait. As we continue over the weekend I’ll introduce you to the work of many other sculptors and talk you through the different approaches taken in my own work.

The final day includes a session preparing the sculpture for firing into ceramic. Your sculpture will be frost-proof and suitable for placing outside.

This masterclass includes a choice of lunches, refreshments and all tools and materials. The fee is £350 per participant.
