Portrait Bust

Summer Sculpture Workshop 2023

Sculpting workshop using a photographic reference and aiming for a good measure of realism. I’m using and teaching the hollow built technique and we are working in approximately ¾ life sized. We will work with photographs to achieve a realistic shape and focus on the surface sculpt for enhanced expression.

The first day will be spent with scale drawings and concept development, as well as starting the base. Three days are reserved for the building of the main body and on the last day we focus on the surface.  We can discuss surface treatment such as glazes and paints, but they are not part of this workshop.

The workshop fee is 4000 kr.. The sculpture can remain in the facilities to dry and can be bisque fired for an additional fee of 100 kr.. A white clay will be available on site and will cost 150 kr per 10 kilo. The most relevant tools are available and I will send a list with recommendations prior to the course.

We are located in the beautiful Hellerup district, near to the station and in cycle distance to the beach.
The general workshop language will be in English, but individual support can also be in German and Danish.
