Unleash your creativity at workshop with eminent Australian sculptor
  • Tuesday 08 January 2013

Sunshine Coast Council invites art enthusiasts to join professional sculptor Craig Medson for a two-day maquette making workshop at Cooroy’s Butter Factory Arts Centre on 9 and 10 February 2013.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn from a professional the methods of creating maquettes that can be used in the production of large-scale sculptures. There will be no limit on theme or design so unleash your creativity and enjoy the journey. Whether you already have an existing idea of what you want to sculpt or if you need inspiration, Craig Medson will be there each step of the way to help to discover your true potential.

The workshop will include how to build the form directly in clay creating the maquette over a small wire armature, as well as casting a small block of plaster and directly carving the form. This will be an easy, fun and creative workshop that will teach you techniques you can use in the future. The main materials used will be clay and plaster but if you prefer to work in plasticine you are welcome to bring your own. It is recommended participants bring a sketch book or photographs of forms they are interested in.

The workshop will be held from 9am to 4.30pm on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 February and is just $130 per person including materials. No previous experience is necessary, places are limited and bookings and pre-payment essential by visiting council’s gallery website.
