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!

“Although the body has been a constant and persistent subject of human expression, the various ways in which we choose to represent the human body continues to evolve. As a teacher I am interested in guiding students towards a deeper expression of their sculptural practice as they interpret the human body, my main interest being to encourage them in developing a personal sculptural language.” – Jenny Pollak
This workshop will guide both the beginner and the more experienced artist through the process involved in working with clay from the life model. Over the course of 9 weeks students will be supported to develop their skills in observation, modelling and interpretation. Students will be encouraged to develop a more personal language or means of expression by learning to look with intention and push their work beyond a merely faithful representation of the body. This exploration will be augmented by looking at the work of the great sculptors past and present. Drawing will also be used as a warm up exercise on the first day.
