Weekend Masterclass: Sculpting Dogs
|Dates||Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 June 2023|
|Location||At the Museum|
Make your own intimate sculpture of a dog using wire and clay. Over the course of a full weekend, you’ll be guided through this highly effective sculpting method, helping you develop practical skills in translating ideas into 3D forms.
We’ll consider different compositions by looking at the anatomy of dogs to help represent how they walk, run and stretch. Through recognizing the abstract shapes their bodies make – either in action or curled up sleeping – you'll find ways to convey their unique personalities. If you prefer, you can bring your own ideas for your dog sculpture, perhaps based on your favourite canine.
With sculptor and art history tutor Sarah Tombs.
