    What you'll learn

    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.

    There are no dates scheduled.
