The multiplicity of applied materials offers much variety: clay, plasticine and wax are used for modelling. Plasticine is re-usable and wax serves as modelling material for the wax melting process in bronze casting. Predominately, clay, the classic modelling material, is utilized in the courses. Your work can also be fired at our school. Through the firing process, clay is usable as an ideal artistic finished product.

Our offering of modelling courses comprises the following 3 variations, which we consciously mix together for the compilation of each course group or together with other sculpting courses:
