    About this class

    Plaster is for so much more than a broken bone - just come and see!

    In this class

    A whistle-stop tour of sculpting with plaster over a fast-paced 2 day course! You will learn how to build sculpture from plaster with chicken wire, scrim, steel and wooden armatures - yes it does sound fun doesn't it!

    You will be given the chance to make expressive and dynamic artwork and explore beautiful finishes and effects that can be achieved by working directly into plaster using certain building and carving techniques!

    You'll master:

    • working from sketch designs
    • different methods for constructing armatures for plaster sculptures
    • mixing and handling plaster safely and effectively
    • coloured finishes and effects, and strengthening plaster for outdoors.

    Further info

    If you can, try and bring along ideas, sketch books or even one of those small models you have at home, as this will help give you ideas for what you might make.

    Make sure you come wearing some old clothes and solid footwear…we wouldn't want a wardrobe disaster now would we?

    London Sculpture Workshop is the first, not-for-profit, community interest organisation, based in London, with exceptional facilities for artists and those interested in making work in 3D. Its workshop is right on the river by Thames Barrier and has incredible views of the Thames guiding lots of inspiration for 3D pieces. It offers a superbly equipped metal and wood workshop with additional mould making and ceramic areas.

    London Sculpture Workshop was established in 2012 by two founding members Giles Corby, MA (RCA) and Jessica Mello, MFA (Slade) and it also has a studio manager Melis van den Berg, MFA (Slade). They are all practicing artists’, bringing their own ideas and inspiration to the organisation, and between them, have 21 years of teaching experience.

    In 2013 and 2014 London Sculpture Workshop was awarded awarded a “Artist’s Run Space Award” by the Chelsea Arts Club Trust.
