Copy a Cast - 4 Day Course
Ignore the finishing time on this event, Meetup won't allow me put a finishing time so many weeks later! 4 sessions spread over the course of 4 weeks: 7 - 10pm each day (12 hours total) At The London Figurative School, we have an eclectic collection of plaster casts which are available for students to copy in clay. There are casts of Roman emperors and cherubs alongside lions to choose from, which have been sculpted by Italian sculptors like Cellini, Canova and Agesander of Rhodes! A great introduction to the art of sculpting is to copy a cast of a portrait so that you become introduced to the subtle shapes that occur on a human face. Unlike realistic portraits, these casts have been sculpted in a simplified and stylized way which makes them perfect for learning the basis shapes of the face. During this course we'll be implementing all the same processes that are used when sculpting a live model , so it will fully equip you for sculpting from life if that's what you want to do in the future.

What we're about

Hello and welcome to The Figurative Sculpture School!

My name is Livia Turco and I am a London-based figurative sculptor. Having spent the past 15 years working as a portrait and figure sculptor for Madame Tussauds, I decided to open The Figurative Sculpture School to pursue my passion for teaching.

My Brixton school offers a relaxed environment for people of all abilities to improve their skills in classical sculpture. Despite having different names, the only difference between the classes we offer is the time frame, the pose we choose and the life model we use!

If you have a personal project that you need help with, I also teach mixed group sessions from £18ph where different people will be working on different projects (group classes, 5 students), or I can offer one-to-one tuition from £35ph.

Please get in touch to discuss your project, or for more information on any of our courses.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
