Creating Expressive Figures

This five-day workshop will be a series of sessions working with polymer clay, cloth and mixed media materials to develop an expressive figure. Polymer clay practice will focus on facial expressions, and developing and creating hands and feet. Some may choose to work on several figures but this is an individual choice. Various ideas for finishing will be demonstrated. This opens the possibilities as you discover a character and choose how to interpret your figure. Basic work can then be completed using a choice of costuming, needle felting, collage, painting, found object assemblage or … all of the above.
