Sculpture residential workshop

Starts 2 Feb 2018


Principles of Mould making and modelling in clay

During the three and a half days of the workshop you will learn how to make a simple piece-mould and then cast the object in plaster. One day will be spent working from a live model to create a figure in clay. Simple body and mind relaxation exercises will help support creative self-discovery. All levels of ability welcome - no experience is necessary.

Dharmamudra has a long-held fascination with the human form. As a painter and sculptor; prison chaplain; boxer and trainer; Tai chi teacher and Buddhist practitioner, he has followed a thread of deep enquiry into form and experience. He delights in offering opportunities for collaborative creative activity.

Sudarshanaloka is a retreat centre just north of Thames in a wild and beautiful native bush setting.
