This is a phenomenal opportunity to sculpt under the guidance of a professional, experienced and talented individual who is considered exceptional by his peers. In addition to teaching out of his studio in Florence, Italy, Jason Arkles, (Host of The Sculptor’s Funeral Podcast) gives workshops internationally, at various times throughout the year. We were delighted to collaborate with Jason’s fellow figure sculptor, Irish-based Clovis Roux, to facilitate this fabulous workshop.
Class size is limited and early booking is recommended.
Below is an outline of what we would hope you will achieve through Jason’s close guidance.
This five day figure sculpting workshop would see the artist create 40% life size figures sculpted in Clay, using the sight-size method. Artists would work off the nude female model. Participants will learn to build large figure sculpture without using the armatures in water based clay, so that the sculpture can be fired at completion.
The instructor, will work alongside students for the full duration of the workshop, providing technique demonstrations and skill practices. This intense masterclass will run over five days, beginning at 10am and finishing at 5pm daily, with one hour for lunch.
