Who is it for?

Intermediate to advanced hand builders.

 

What you might make

Students will focus on making heads, sculpting facial features and building a full figure all while focusing on the proportions of the human body. 

 

What to expect

Your instructor will provide hands-on demonstrations and guide you through an exploration of sculptural work, as you learn more about the human form. Students are encouraged to bring in a figurative project on which they would like to get guidance.

What to bring

Basic handbuilding tools, such as a fork, a wooden paddle, skewers, wooden dowel rods, soft and stiff brushes in different sizes, a loop tool, a wire tool, a knife, a needle tool, a serrated rib, a red rib from Mudtools (see link 1 below), and an eye tool is a must (see link 2 below). Be aware it may take up to a week for the eye tool to ship.
