Week 1 – Sculpture workshop at the Hepworth Art Gallery in Wakefield.
Starting with continuous line drawing of a few Hepworth sculptures in gallery 1. Followed an attempt to observe a piece through manipulation of foil.
Wire-work frame was secured with finer wire then chicken wire added to create volume. Plaster mixing, and covering the frame in layers of plaster-soaked hessian strips to build a more solid form. More plaster was then added until a good surface was built up.
Next week we hope to continue to smooth or texturise the surface, and add colour where needed .
