Head Study Sculpture Workshop
122 Strikes Lane, Eurunderee, NSW, 2850, Australia
17th September 2018 to 19th September 2018
During this three-day workshop you’ll cover the three stages of sculpture production: sculpting, mould-making and casting. You’ll study the human form and mould-making techniques before creating a life-sized human head sculpture modelled in clay. By the end, you’ll be equipped with the skills to sculpt a human head, create a mould and cast a head sculpture. Day One: Create a life-like human head sculpture from clay using your hands and tools supplied or brought from home. This workshop will focus on the benefits of building an armature to support your work, specific facial features and proportions, and relevant texture applications. Day Two: On the second day you will learn the skill of mould making for sculpture. You’ll create a waste mould from Agenate with a two-part plaster casing and then learn about appropriate part lines and the importance of considering undercuts and other common traps. Day Three: On day three you will arrive bright and early to open your mould and pour your cast in plaster of Paris or concrete. Together you will discuss the best casting procedures and how to fix any problems in the cast once it’s out of the mould.
