Contemplative Figure – a unique felt sculpture
22 April - 5 June£250.00
A 6-week online course by Molly Williams
You will learn how to make a large contemplative sculpture using a wet felt method of sculpting.
These sculptures are inspired by the work of modern sculptors, such as Barbara Hepworth and Sir Henry Moore and others. You will have the opportunity to explore the work of these sculptors and, through a series of drawing exercises, create your own shapes.
The finished figure will measure about 12″/30cm – 18″/45cm in height, dependent on the shape and position.
This is a very energetic process that involves manual shaping and felting, plus a sander and steamer to finish.
Each weekly lesson is comprised of a range of activities to show you how to build your sculpture step-by-step. There are video instructions, text and images and downloadable worksheets for each activity.
Online teaching materials and resources are available to students for 6 months from the beginning of the class. The downloadable course material and PDF’s are yours forever.
There is an online course Discussion Forum where you can chat to me and fellow students, post comments and images and ask questions.
