sculpting animals crop.jpg

Come make a sculpture for your home or garden. This lively and fun three-day workshop is designed to help you get started on the fundamentals of building larger animal forms in clay. Step by step, Alison will show you the techniques she uses to build her animals.

Day #1. We will start hand building the main form of our animals and making a structure to support it. The legs will be made and added.

Day #2. We will be refining the form. It will be the day we add necks, heads and tails.

Day #3. We finalize the form, refine our pieces, and carve or stamp in texture. Slip decoration will also be discussed.

We will be working with cone 10 clay. Clay and bisque firing are included in the fee. If you want your pieces wood or soda fired, there will be an extra charge. Bring reference materials. The fee is $300 for the three days. To register and reserve your space, please email us. To pay, please send your check to: Alison Palmer • P.O. Box 686 • Kent, CT 06757
