Programme Hollowed out clay sculpture: Hohl aufgebaute Plastik:
After a short introduction to the technique, you will sculpt large sculptures and figures (approx. 1 m tall) in hollow out modelling. This makes it possible to have them kiln-fired later, if desired. From simple naturalistic representation from a draft, to discovering of new ideas during the modelling process - all possibilities are open.
Bring along various modelling tools and appropriate work clothes. The Course may takes place in our outdoor sculpting pavilion. Coarse fireclay is used as the working material, which you can either bring from home or purchase in our shop.
