In this week long intensive Kate will teach you the techniques she personally uses to build her sculptural figures using polymer clay, cloth, and wire construction. You will create two sculptures.

Choose a horse, bird, or rabbit approximately 15” tall as your major piece of the workshop. Starting with a drawing you will design and make a fabric pattern, then use wire to build the form that will animate your piece. Exploring your own process you can use paint, found objects, fabrics, or collage to embellish your work of art.

In the second part of the class you will be creating a figure to ride or lead or perhaps dance ... with your fantasy critter.

Kate will have patterns available if you feel you are not ready to design your own. Get ready for an extraordinary, fun, and inspiring ride!

Level: Beginner and above

Student Supply List:
Please bring an object to use as a base for your figure. A personal object can help create a sentimental energy toward your figure. Most important, the base supports the height and balance of the figure so I suggest it be something with some weight to it and a material we can drill into.

Tuition $670
Materials Fee $30
