In this four day course, sculptor Jason Arkles leads the class in creating 30% life-sized figures in clay, using the visual measurement techniques of the Sight Size method. Working from a live model posed in a seated position, students will learn how to build clay figures of substantial dimensions without the use of an armature, in water-based clay. Instructor Jason Arkles will work alongside students throughout the duration of the course, providing a demonstration of techniques and practices for the entirety of the course.

Throughout the course, each student will work from a living model seven hours a day. Instead of moulding and casting the work at the end of the course, these seated figures will be hollowed out leaving them ready to dry and to be subsequently fired into terracotta statuettes, should the students wish. Alternatively, students can take their work home for further finishing or casting, as desired.


Please note: Firing services are not included in the workshop. Participant will have make their own arrangments.
