Learn how to use ceramic construction techniques in this new workshop with Rowena!

Over four weeks you will create a human head, developing your knowledge of facial proportion as you learn to construct an expressive sculpture.

Week one: Designing and constructing the basic head structure starting from the base of the neck using coil and modified slab construction.

Week two: Constructing the face, focusing on proportion and expression.

Week 3: Refining your form and enhancing your form through the addition of hair and other components you would like to add and the optional inclusion of underglaze.

We’ll then have a two week break to allow time for drying and firing.

Week 4: Once your sculpture is bisque fired you will have the opportunity to add glaze, more underglaze and oxide to your sculpture. Your sculpture will then be glaze fired and ready to collect.
