For everyone – Making animals using techniques based on my own work
The course is suitable for beginners as well as those with more experience in clay modelling. You will be taught how to build animals from the legs up, including suitable plinths or bases if required. As well as the techniques involved in modelling animals, you will develop an appreciation of the medium, including the timing of the different stages of construction and when to stop!
Students should bring plenty of source material including photographs, drawings, small models and even plastic toy farm animals. These will be very important to work from throughout the course.
Each student should complete at least one animal, and most can expect to finish two or more, depending on size.
