Jon Edgar is currently contributing to the Graduate Diploma/MA Sculpture programme at West Dean College (University of Sussex accredited) and the Fine Art BA programme at UCA (University for the Creative Arts) Canterbury.
Several short course dates are also available. Book early as the last 4 portrait courses have been fully booked. See a recent portrait course review here.
27-30 June – Improvisation and sculpture: a course using clay introducing the techniques devised by Alan Thornhill, which will enable you to consider building larger clay sculptures without recourse to a metal or wood armature. (3 days)
26-29 Aug - Portrait head in Clay (intensive – two models over two days, ‘three starts’; a visual rather than anatomical approach seeking to build a formal equivalent)
18-20 Oct – Introduction to Sculpture (2 days)
3 Nov – single day on portraiture skills at Yorkshire Sculpture Park – please contact for details
29 Nov-2 Dec Portrait head
