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!
This course was INCREDIBLE- highlight of the year. Livia is so talented and has teaching skills to help any ability. She took our class of sculptors and taught us SO much. I am sure this course will benefit my sculpting career and grow my knowledge of anatomy but more importantly it has reignited my love for sculpture. Livia teaches with such passion you cannot help but come away refreshed and revived. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in sculpture whether as a hobbyist or as an experienced professional Livia will have much to teach you.
I've learnt so much from Livia. She's able to quickly identify where you are going wrong with a sculpture and give perceptive advice which puts you back on the right track. This efficiency means you are able to achieve a lot in a session. Her knowledge of anatomy is extensive and she is always right! Being a former Madame Tussauds sculptor, she's able to cater for all abilities and tutor you right up to hyper realism if thats what you're aiming for, so even very experienced sculptors can learn a hell of a lot from her. Her classes are always fun and relaxed, but focused, you are there to learn!I would love to be a sculptor one day and this course has dramatically improved my anatomical knowledge!
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.
