About this course
A 6-week online course where you will learn how to make a large contemplative sculpture using a wet felt method of sculpting.
These sculptures are inspired by the work of modern sculptors, such as Barbara Hepworth and Sir Henry Moore and others. You will have the opportunity to explore the work of these sculptors and, through a series of drawing exercises, create your own shapes.
The finished figure will measure about 16″/40cm – 20″/50cm in height, dependent on the shape and position.
This is an energetic process that involves manual shaping and felting, plus a sander and steamer to finish.
