Taking inspiration from Eduardo Paolozzi, Barbara Hepworth, and contemporary figurative artists, the course will guide you through:
- A series of exercises using different techniques to create heads.
- Working with clay to build and create different textures and surfaces.
- Refining the heads.
About this course people said: ‘Duncan was a brilliant teacher, supportive, non-judgemental, which put me at ease. I also enjoyed trying other methods (I.e. plaster work).’
‘I enjoyed it all; there was time to relax and enjoy without worrying about the finished head. I was surprised as it seemed to work really well without a model.’
