Workshops

Our workshop classes run for ten weeks with students attending a three-hour workshop at their preferred time. You can start on any term throughout the year. These workshops are for all skill levels and aim to develop your knowledge and understanding of all aspects of creating sculpture in a range of media. Those new to sculpture will learn alongside other students and are offered a structured, 10-week program learning the basics of clay modelling, plaster-casting and colouring to produce their own finished sculpture. More advanced students will develop their techniques and are encouraged to drive their own projects with the guidance of their teacher. Everyone is invited to encounter a unique artistic experience in an inspiring studio space!

Term 1: Double Figure Life Study with Jenny Pollak

Sundays, 12 February – 3 April (8 weeks), 10:00am – 3:30pm
Fees: Early Bird: $880, Full: $980

The relationship between two figures can give us a unique insight into the abstract possibilities of space and form. This workshop will encourage the student to look for new and interesting solutions to the challenges of depicting the complexity of two bodies in relationship to each other, bringing a fresh eye to the exploration of rhythm, negative space, mass and balance.

Jenny will guide both the beginner and the more experienced artist through the process involved in working with clay from the life model. Students will be encouraged to push their work beyond a merely faithful representation of the body and develop a more personal language and means of expression.

During this 8 week course students will have time to bring their work to a point where it is ready to be fired, exploiting the facility and beauty of clay as a material that can be transformed from the raw and impermanent to a final and enduring sculptural piece.
