Classes

12 hour course

Evening

In this class, you will be copying a roman antique cast, you will learn how to reproduce the head in clay, learn about techniques and tools but most importantly develop your observation skills. I will show you how to observe the piece and refine your work.

This class stretches over 12 hours, suitable for beginners or those who wants to practice before moving onto life sculpting. Here you will learn the basics of sculpture, same basics that are used for great art works or professional works such as wax works portraiture!

The classes are relaxed mid week evenings, come to learn a new skill and relax as you focus on your work.

Unfortunately we are not able to offer our students the option to mould and cast their work however they are welcome to take photos at the end of the class.

Coming from a glass art background, I have the privilege to be taught sculpture to a extremely high level, this includes the attention and support from a fantastic and well experienced tutor, Livia Turco. I enjoy the class and I have been encouraged to push the boundaries and look at my work in a totally different way. The venue is relaxing and very private, I am inspired and look forward to every lesson with Livia. The space maybe small, however the relationship with the students working in the space is wonderful and supportive. Livia continue the love and support you give to all of your students. Thank you so much

A GREAT introduction to sculpture which isn't just one evening. The longer course allowed me to get to grips with sculpting techniques and pace myself. You do learn more from trial and error and you get more practice. You don't feel rushed until the last day. Finished or not it's still a great sense of accomplishment. I chose not to pay for the bust to be fired and glazed because I felt it wasn't something I wanted to keep - what am I going to do with with a huge Roman bust? It's solid clay so it was also very heavy. It was great to have the option. Livia is an absolutely wonderful tutor. Very patient, very experienced, kind and encouraging. She has a wealth of knowledge and if you are struggling to correct something she will tell you how to better approach fixing it, or if you are frustrated then she will do it with you. She's always watching and giving you tips and pointers.
