Event description
In this workshop participants will be introduced to basic techniques on how to sculpt a Bas-relief

About this Event

Bas-relief is an ancient technique. Its earliest use is found in the written clay tablets of the Sumerian civilization from around 2100 BC. Bas-relief sculpture has beautified the historic monuments and temples of the ancient Egyptians and Assyrians, the 8th century Kailasa Hindu temple in India carved out of a single rock, and the Art Deco architecture of the 20th century.

In this workshop participants will be introduced to basic techniques on how to sculpt a Bas-relief to create an optical illusion. The advantage of working with clay to learn to sculpt a Bas-relief is that the clay allows the participant to not just carve into the clay to create the relief, but also to be able to add material as needed. The participant will sculpt from a slab of clay 20 x 30 cm and 3 cm thick.

This is an opportunity to create your own miniature mural. Some drawing skill is helpful, but not necessary. This workshop is ideal for the painter who wants to increase their understanding of depth and optical illusion, and to create their own relief clay canvas. We will set up a surprise still life for the students to work from.

This is a 12 hour weekend workshop, please bring your lunch.

$250 Members, $260 non-members,

$60 for supplies (includes kiln firing) (payable directly to the instructor)

Workshop follow-up to collected fired works will be March 28th from 10am to 12pm
