Simplified sculpture workshop

Javier Murcia’s Sculpture Studio is running a two day workshop at WPA on simplified human figure sculpture.

A simplified figure will be used to explain to how to break down the body into simple geometrical parts. This makes it easy to understand the volume of these different parts and the core structure of the figure; so that it holds its weight and plays with the balance against gravity. You will learn proportions and anatomy without going too deep, just enough to read through the surface of the skin and get an understanding of the human figure.

For anyone interested in figure sculpture, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

The workshop will be at WPA on 1st and 2nd May, 9am-6pm. Cost is $395 for members and $495 for non- members. Limited to 12 participants. To register, email president@wellingtonpotters.org.nz – first come, first served.
