Figurine Sculpture Workshop 9th and 16th March 2024
About this Event
The classes will run over two weeks on the 9th and 16th March 2024. The Monte Lupo studio is at 269 Padstow Rd, Eight Mile Plains, behind the Monte lupo Café.
Morning Tea will be provided by the Monte lupo Cafe.
DAY 1| Saturday 9th | 10am - 1pm
You will be guided through the process of forming your own sculpture and giving your masterpiece some personality through sculptural techniques. Each person will be given a wheel thrown bottle shape that you will put a head, arms, hair and any other embellishments you would like. The sculpture is usually a minimum of 30cm tall.
DAY 2 | Saturday 16th| 10am - 1pm
You will be guided through the process of decorating your piece, ready for firing.
After the second week, your piece will be fired by our talented team at Monte Lupo studio, ready for you to take home. The sculpture is usually ready to take home a week later.
Please note, we do not provide every underglaze colour. If there is a particular colour you want and we do not provide, please purchase your own from Pottery Supplies at your own expense.
