Upcoming Workshops

In this 5 day portrait sculpture workshop, students will learn a step by step method, using simple visual measuring tools, to create an accurate likeness.  We will work for 30 hours from the live model in water based clay. Clay, armature, and the model fee are included in the $850 fee. Appropriate for all levels.  Students should bring their own tools, including simple wooden sculpting tools. Beginners are welcome. 

On the last day of the workshop, students may choose to have their portrait sculpture 3D scanned.  The digital 3D scan file will be emailed to the student making it possible to have the sculpture 3D printed. The price for the scan is @$150.

Following the workshop we will be giving an optional 4 day silicone mold making workshop. The fee is $400 plus a materials fee of $150 which covers the cost of the silicone, plaster, brushes,  tape, and burlap. Students will also need to bring two flexible plaster rubber bowls and two stainless steel plaster spatulas for working with the plaster part of the mold. These can be purchased online and info will be sent to students about where to get them after signing up. 

We will make every effort to get each student’s sculpture and/or mold safely home. We can make a box for shipping or wrap with bubble wrap for car transport. Any costs of shipping, however, will be covered by the student, and we cannot guarantee that your work will arrive safely once it has left our studio, so consider insuring it and having it scanned before you make the mold!
