Clay Life Modelling Weekend with Karin Ort, 13/14 May

TWO VACANCIES HAVE BECOME AVAILABLE FOR THIS COURSE, please email James if you would like to fill them. james@orts.co.uk

With step-by-step tuition from Karin Ort, make a clay sculpture based on one of our life models.

Karin will guide you through the process of clay modelling; explaining how to handle & control the clay, get your proportions right and finish the piece in preparation for firing.

Perfect for the complete novice and experienced artists alike, you can work in a realistic or abstract manner and interpret what you see in your own particular way. Once finished the piece will be dried out and fired in one of our kilns.
