Sculpting Air Dry Clay (March 9th & 16th)


With Bethany Stead

This is a two day course on:
Saturdays, March 9th & 16th,
10.00 – 16.00

If you are interested in clay or ceramic sculpture, but want to discover a way that you can use this material at home without accessing a kiln and the extra cost of firing, this course is for you! 

In the first session of this course, you will create a simple armature onto which you will build a small to medium size sculpture with air-dry clay. 

In the second session, you can then spend time refining or decorating your dried sculptures with acrylic paint, and finishing with an optional acrylic gloss to give the effect of fired ceramic. 

This course will cover the basics of clay building, joining and carving techniques, as well as provide an introduction to using clay for making ceramic objects and sculpture in the future!

All abilities welcome
