Sculpture Workshop: Make Your Mate Out of Clay

Sculpt your mate, sip and laugh



2 hours - 2.5 hours Class size 1 to 12 (public classes), 4 to 20

label $99 - $105 ($105 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $99 for 2+ guests; price varies across dates)

In this fun Sydney workshop, you will be guided on how to sculpt a little portrait of the person you know by capturing their most prominent features.

You can come with your "workshop partner" and sculpt each other on the spot or bring a photograph of the person you want to sculpt. You can absolutely make your imaginary friend too, I will help you in doing it.

Everyone will receive a little wooden base with a skull to have a solid foundation and help you focus on developing a character. We are going to be making mini-busts, approximately 10 cm tall - you are welcome to do a bigger one if you wish. Group is limited to 10 people.

One of the major differences between applied (such as pottery making) and fine arts is that in the fine arts there are no strict rules that could make our project unsuccessful or "failed" to serve its function.

In this workshop, you will firstly have a good laugh, then learn something about realistic sculpting and finally get to take home your very original and one of a kind artwork. Every single mini-bust has a lot of character and its own beauty!

We will be sculpting out of air-dry clay so that you can take your piece home and patinas will be available so that you can paint your portrait if you wish to do so.

Please note: It is advisable to bring a little box to carry your small sculpture home

Hi, I'm Irina.

I like to introduce myself as a sculptor, although I'm engaged in different art disciplines too. I have never had another profession, nor have I wanted one. I fell in love with three-dimensional art at a very early age which came to me naturally, as I was born in a family of artists. It was the world I've grown up in, a measure of value around me.

I have graduated from Fine Arts, majoring in Sculpture, and with a bit of luck, I had a chance to work internationally and gain great experience in different industries and media. Cooperating with professionals from other creative fields has perfectioned my skills and broadened the views of my artistic expression.

I have tried to gather all the projects I am engaged in on this website, showcase it, sell and teach my art. Always open for the new projects with fellow creatives, just get in touch.

We had a great time. Teacher was lovely, made us tea and biscuits and guided us through the process and gave good tips that were useful for us non-artists! The space was also very cosy and relaxing. It was a great and unusual experience and I would recommend to others.
