Open Studio Sculpture | Term Two, 2024

Wondering about sculpture? Curiosity is the key!! Start with a basic idea and, with help from your tutor, learn processes and technical skills to extend your creative practice in your areas of interest.
If you are uncertain about where to start, no problem. Your tutor can help you to decide on a suitable project which will focus on the techniques you might want to explore.
Students wishing to work with clay must have attended the beginners ceramic class or equivalent.
