8 week course starting Monday 15 May (except 29 May)

Course Description:

Develop sculptural ideas and experiment with form, initially through drawing and model making, before finalising and finishing a unique piece.

A sculpture course for both the beginner and for those with an established interest in the subject. This class will allow you to explore the development of ideas into three-dimensional form. You will experiment with form through drawing, maquette making, analysis and discussion, and will be guided through the sculptural process from materials and techniques to idea development and the realisation of your ideas into a final piece.

Objectives of this course are to learn a range of sculptural techniques from initial conception of an idea to the finished sculpture. Students will be encouraged to develop an ambitious approach to object making, and will be guided through the use of a range of materials with the support of Austin Orwin.

Course Tutor:

Known for referencing characterised heads within his sculptures, Austin Orwin equally works in carved organic forms and hand-drawn illustrations. His 16 years of development have grown his skills and passion to the point where he now shares his talents through adult teaching courses across Leicester.
