The Expressive Bust with Tip Toland
350.00

Friday, November 1- Sunday, November 3, 9:30am- 4:30pm

5424 South shore Drive, Guemes Island, WA

A three day hands on workshop with Tip Toland-Sculpting a life size “EXTREME” expression in clay.

Working from photographs, each participant will choose one of three models which all hold extreme, open mouth expressions. The photos show the front, profile and musculature of the models so students will be able to study the muscles at work for each expression.

We’ll work with solid clay on a simple metal pipe armature for the first two days and on the third day, cut it off the armature, hollow it and keep it as a full head or as a wall mask. Lots of possibilities will be discussed regarding final finishes.

Cost is $350.00 which includes a #25 bag of stoneware clay.

Tip will provide a materials list for students, firing of clay heads extra.
