Echidna Bas Relief: Modelling And Casting

Class Artwork – Student with bas-relief animal sculpture
Tutor: Christine Simpson
1 afternoon workshop

All Levels

This workshop will begin with drawing an echidna composition on A3 paper after observing its skeletal structure and proportional values. This will then become the basis of our modelling the bas relief where we create the allusion of 3 dimensions using a flat clay surface. This modelling will then be cast in plaster to take home and hang when it has fully cured and dried.

We are delighted to resume face-to-face workshops and classes! However, the health and well-being of our community remains our top priority.  To comply with NSW Government Covid-19 rules and social distancing requirements from 1st July classes will have 10 students maximum, with a limit of 12 people in the inside studio space at any time. Please be mindful of this and help us keep our community safe.

Any child who is in the appropriate age range indicated for each workshop can attend, no prior experience is required to partake. EXCEPTIONS: If an older child wants to do a younger child’s workshop eg: 9 wanting to do a 5-8 year course that will be fine as long as the child knows they will be with younger children. We won’t be able to have a 7 year old do a 10-12 year course. Please also note all children must have started school, pre schoolers are not accepted for these workshops.
