This is a clay sculpture workshop that will teach kids how to construct & decorate a fantasy bird in the round. First, we will identify all the parts of birds & their unique characteristics. We will begin with a drawing, combining a range of features to create our fantastic bird & talk about any changes that need to be made so we can create a stable sculpture. Kids will be given a demonstration to show them how to go about building the parts & constructing the complete body that will include traditional methods such as pinch, coil & slab. On completion of this step they will learn how various tools can be used to create the facial features & details.
Remember to bring a box to take your fantasy bird sculpture home safely.
