6 hours Class size 1 to 10 (public classes), 10 to 12

label $120 - $130 ($130 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $120 for 2+ guests)


In this five-hour studio workshop, students will learn the basic concepts of the construction of a human head using only air-dry clay, modelling wire, some basic tools and their own hands. This workshop is aimed at complete beginners as well as anyone with previous experience. Come and immerse yourself in this hands-on and intensive session where you will learn:

    • How to sculpt a human head
    • A basic understanding of face anatomy.
    • Relative Proportions
    • Surface Modeling 
    • Experiment with a variety of sculpting tools

*Limited to 10 tickets*

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

All materials to be used in the class including sculpting tools and air dry clay.

Note: There will be a 30 minute break for lunch. There are plenty of food options available on nearby Smith and Brunswick Streets, or feel free to bring lunch on the day.

What to bring
    • Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty!
    • Something to take your work home in
    • Bring an open mind, a positive attitude, willingness to learn and a lot of patience

 

Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This class is a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, corporate event, bucks party or Christmas party.

Esenarro has been creating sculptures over the past 20 years, he has chosen the ceramics as his medium for its unique beauty and strength. His love for the human anatomy and its complexity is expressed through his ceramic sculptures, in which he attempts to incorporate unconscious aspects of the personality that the conscious ego does not identify in itself. He is interested in creating sculptures in which people can feel identified with those harmless characters that live inside the mind.

Alex is an unbelievably talented and special artist who also happens to be a gifted teacher. Patient, passionate and humble, he made sure to give everyone lots of help, time and help.
For a 6-hour class, you learn a lot and everyone made beautiful sculptures, unique but all fantastic.
I would highly recommend Alex. 5-stars all round!
