information

Summary

The course is an introduction to sculptural practice and will involve basic taster sessions, primarily clay work, basic casting and construction and carving, to equip students with the knowledge/skills for the fundamentals of 3D making processes. The hands-on sessions, with a well-equipped workshop, will look at artists' works, exploring a range of possibilities of materials and ways of working for reference or inspiration.

There will be the opportunity for students to develop their own pieces from skills learnt from previous sessions as they progress through the course. Students with previous experience will be able to develop their own independent, self-directed study aside from the weekly projects if preferred. Tutorial input and support will enable exciting work to be developed.

Extra material costs may be incurred if students wish to construct large pieces or use more costly materials. Costs can be negotiated with the tutor.

The tutor, Barbara Ash, is an artist based in Bristol, and has for the past few years had a practice for part of the year in Bangalore, India. She graduated with a Master's Degree in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art and was awarded a Henry Moore Fellowship, based for one year at Canterbury College of Art. As a practicing artist she exhibits widely, has undertaken many residencies around the world and has received several artists grants from the Arts Council of Great Britain, and she was one of the recipients for the 'Year of the Artist' Award. Barbara has just been elected a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors.

She has over 20 years' experience of studio/exhibition practice, and in tandem to this she enjoyed freelance teaching, supporting a wide range of students including young children, college students and pensioner groups, before joining Queens Road in 2016.
