Initiation to sculpture
Learn how to look differently and you'll find out what you're capable of.
It is a 3-hour experimental workshop to learn how to hand model clay, looking for the desired shape.
Performing organic figures, participants will create directly by modelling the clay, with attention, guidelines and reflections related to the process that the teacher will be making. Learn the behavior of the material, read the shapes, use the tools and connect with your hands.
