January Sculpture & 3D Character Design Programme - 12-17 year olds

Jan 22 – 25, 2024

Want to gain a valuable new skill? Come along and learn how to sculpt with polymer clay!

Whether you want to sculpt a character who has human features, is a fire breathing dragon, or is a sub-Saharan lizard, the world is your oyster (and your sculpture could be too!). It doesn’t necessarily have to be a character; you could sculpt any kind of object.

Sculpting with polymer clay is a fun way to relax and let your creativity loose. You can achieve an intricate level of detail, using a variety of tools. Super Sculpey is a specialised oven-bake polymer clay, often used in the manufacturing of toys, jewellery, and figurines and can be cast in a variety of materials. In this course, you will learn how to sculpt with this high-quality product. You will also learn how to build a tinfoil and wire base (‘armature’), which will reinforce the structure of your creation, so it may survive the distance.

Sculpting is immensely helpful for those wanting to improve their drawing skills, as you will begin to understand objects in a 3-dimensional format. It also serves as a steppingstone for those planning to pursue a career in the film industry as creature designers, props makers, stop-motion animators, prosthetic make-up artists and more.

10 students maximum.

All materials included.

Tutored by highly skilled and talented WSA tutor Anya Gladstone-Gallagher.
