Come join me for a weekend of life modelling, for this workshop we have a female model, the armature will be ready made so that you can concentrate on sculpting!

In this workshop we will copy the model's torso and scale it down to half size. The focus of the class will be anatomy and proportions. We will work on understanding the underlying structure of the anatomy I will draw the muscles on the model so that the human body can be clear to us. We will work on understanding proportions- the flow of the forms, making sure our work capture the essence of the model.

We will use measurements but only to train our eyes to eventually become our measuring devices so that in the future you will use the calipers as an aid to your eyes.

We will be using water based clay. You cant take your work away with you for an extra 10 pounds.

All tools are provided, just bring an apron and passion for sculpting!

This is in intense class but also a wonderful one, come join me for a weekend of sculpture, concentration and art!

The classes only run when the number of students is reached.

This is such a fantastic weekend course !! It was super intense and I learnt a hell of a lot, nothing beats sculpting from a live model and producing a fresh sketch of their figure. I walked away with a terracotta torso which I've hollowed out and is now ready to be fired in the kiln,. Such a unique piece of work!

As a returner to life modelling after a long break,this was a perfect class to re connect. Livia is a great teacher,knowledgeable, direct and encouraging. The class was small so each student got plenty of attention during 2 days. It was an intensive and productive course that I would recommend to anyone wishing to study the figure in more depth. Really looking forward to future courses that I plan to attend.

Absolutely fantastic workshop. Livia is an amazing sculptor and passionate about teaching and ensuring that everyone gets the most out of the two days. She picks students up at the level they are at and since the classes are small, she is able to give lots of one-to-one attention to every student. Livia is also an incredibly likeable person, who creates a fun and focused learning environment. I loved every minute of the workshop and can't wait to do more classes with her!!
