During this 5 x week short course students will form a life size human head working with large coils and sculptural modelling processes.

4 x weeks ( 07 – 28 March ) will be dedicated to building the head, developing proportions, defining features, details and surfaces, and thinning the form. The piece will then be left to dry and be bisque fired.

1 x week ( April Date TBC) When all heads have been fired, this session will include demonstrations of possible finishes for the works using cold finishes. Use of colour, stains, faux bronze and other decorative possibilities will be demonstrated.

Handouts to be supplied – ‘Ceramic Sculptural Process’ and ‘Approach to Finishes’ will be distributed during the workshop
