ONSITE: Sculpting Figures

Are you ready to build some larger forms and create some creatures? Bring your ideas for an animal, figure, mask, garden gnome, or abstract sculpture to life! Learn coiling and carving techniques, how to build slab supports and constructing connected forms to make figures, 3D sculptures or relief work that's built to last. We'll have fun with adding texture and detail to your finished piece and discuss how to properly store ongoing work so that it can be added onto each week.
