Clay Portraiture 2020

Gillian Taylor

Gillian teaches our Clay Portraiture class on first floor Granary building which runs:-

  • on a Tuesday morning  from 10am – 12noon
  • and Tuesday evening from 7pm – 9pm

The fee for this class includes £10 for materials (including one bag of clay)  and £15 for the firing of your work and £5 for the cleaning of the studio with the use of clay.   All tools and equipment are provided along with the clay and materials needed to complete and fire your class work.  Additional clay and firing can be arranged with the tutor.

While every effort is made to provide facilities for the class that will allow the students to work on their sculpture during the term, and to have this fired, the student undertakes this at their own risk.  The committee and the tutors, however, do their best to help the students to achieve a satisfactory result from their work but firing in a kiln is uncertain and so not all the work is completed without damage.  Adequate shelving is provided for the safe storage of work but as this is a relatively busy shared space,   PACC cannot be held responsible for any accidental damage to student’s pieces of work.

My detailed understanding of facial anatomy has allowed me to improve the accuracy and details of my portraits, whether in pencil or in clay.
