Underwater Worlds

Underwater Worlds

With Stephanie Thatcher


Description

Dive into an imaginary underwater world with professional illustrator Stephanie Thatcher, for a one-day sculptural workshop, creating a seascape scene with creatures inspired by the watery depths.

Using moulding clay and wire, we'll learn how to translate our preliminary drawings into three-dimensional characters, before carefully sculpting their detailed features adding expression and personality with paint and brush.

To finish off, we'll build a small-scale diorama backdrop to represent the watery world for our creatures to swim in. Recycled, found or natural materials will add the final finishing touches to our Underwater Worlds.
