Sunday Sculpting Sessions

Sunday, 19 August 2018 | 10:00 AM to 01:00 PM

Woman sculpting wax with carving tool

This three-hour workshop is for complete beginners or those with limited experience. It covers an introduction to sculpting techniques and a range of different materials that can be used.

Lose yourself for three hours working with your hands and unleash those creative skills. Every month, you will have the opportunity to try your hand at crafting a different sculpture out of a variety of materials. From carving wax to moulding clay, each Sunday Sculpting Session will provide an exciting opportunity to create something new.

These are stand-alone workshops – you can attend one, or attend them all! The choice is yours. Take home a new and different sculpture every time.

No experience necessary, though eager participants are able to work on the same project each month if they have a larger ambition in mind. All materials and tools are provided.

 

Price: $40 | $35 Friends of the Gallery | $20 ages 10-17 (must be accompanied by an adult). Includes all materials and tools

Who: Anyone interested in sculpture and modelling. No experience necessary. Suitable for ages 10+ (Under 18s must be accompanied by a paying adult).

About the Tutor 

Brendon Tohill is a Rockhampton sculptor. He has taught many carving and sculpting classes at Rockhampton Art Gallery and around the region.

Brendon is a bronze caster who also carves in wood, stone, marble and bone. He casts bronze using the lost wax process and a homemade foundry he has set up at home. Being able to cast his own pieces allows him to experiment with casting for his artwork.

Brendon also experiments with different media, using bronze, wood, steel and glass with a variety of other media to achieve the outcome and the final piece of art work.
