Using a clay slab, you will create a front or side view portrait using a photo as a guide (bring your own, or one can also be provided for you). You will model the facial figure using simple tools and your hands. The terracotta clay you’ll be using has a rich base which translates equally well to antique and modern styling. Stains will be available to enhance certain features. The final piece will be fired to a hard and strong consistency ready for hanging on the wall or placing on an easel.
