    About this class

    Learn how to create 3D sculptures from your 2D drawings. This 2-day course is ideal for artists looking to develop their drawing skills as well as those interested in translating 2D drawings into 3D forms.

    In this class

    On day 1 you will be working with the fabulous artist Wendy Ella who will:

    • teach you how to create a 3D sculpture with a mixture of light weight objects, fabric and string creating a balanced, abstract construction inspired by the wrapped works of artists Christo and Jeanne Claude
    • guide you through a series of drawing exercises over a range of scales (A4 – A1) and using a variety of mediums from pencil to charcoal to create a series of drawings allowing you the opportunity to develop your observational, perspective, scale and general drawing skills under our expert guidance

    On day 2 Giles Corby, London Sculpture Workshop director, will teach you how to:

    • use modelling wax
    • all about wax sculpting techniques including water and heating to explore the sculptural properties of working in wax
    • build on the previous days drawings and translate their drawings from 2D into 3D

    As if that is not enough, there will be loads of demonstrations by the teaching team as well as a quick pop-up exhibition and informal discussion at the end of the session.

    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.
