On this workshop South African animal sculptor Stephen Rautenback will be teaching how to sculpt a small animal in wax ready for casting into bronze should the student wish to do this after the workshop at our local foundry ( there will also be a visit to the foundry after the workshop one evening ) He will cover the techniques of ‘ breathing life into animal sculpture ‘ together with composition, and exploring different stylistic renditions and techniques of animal sculpture. We will also cover ‘ distortion and the happy accident ! ‘ Stephen will also be giving lectures on sculptures as finished pieces and references to size of editions, artists proofs, etc. together with tips on sustaining a recognisable, high quality bronze collection. ... and more !
