In this workshop, participants will learn techniques for hollow building a 1/2 - 3/4 scale full figure in water-based clay. Daily demonstrations will be detailed but efficient to allow for and for as much time as possible for one-on-one interaction and technical assistance as well as providing adequate time for participants to work on their own sculptures.
We will cover:
• creating quick clay sketches (plus the reasons to do so)
• slab and coil construction
• use of internal and external supports
• fundamental anatomy on a “need-to-know” basis
• addressing proportion issues effectively
• working with photographic reference
• tools for building large (participants will also have an opportunity to try various tools I prefer for various stages in the process)
• demonstrations on construction, refinement, finishing techniques, as much as time allows
Fee includes Sunday evening Meet and Greet at the Poole Studio, workshop instruction and studio space, materials, model reference, optional early morning sessions on topics of interest to sculptors, optional gallery hop afternoon in Santa Fe, optional evening work session, optional firing. Shipping of fired work would be a separate charge with fee to be determined post-workshop, pre-firing.

If we cannot hold the course due to unforeseen events beyond our control:
New Mexico has been experiencing a particularly severe wildfire season. Throughout, Santa Fe has been in no danger. If this status changes and it becomes necessary to cancel the workshop, registrants will be notified as early as possible and all registration monies will be returned.
