The Portrait Mask in Clay

THE PORTRAIT MASK IN CLAY: 2 Day Weekend (Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th August 10am - 4pm) 

Both beginners and more experienced students will enjoy this opportunity to really focus on the structure, features and expressive potential of the face to make a portrait mask in clay from a clothed sitter. Well be working life-size, starting from a ‘press mould’ of the underlying boney structure and with reference to drawings of the musculature of the face. This quick but revealing method is designed to inform and enhance direct observation – to create a convincing portrait mask over the course of a weekend.
