Clay Sculpting & Animation Workshop: Sun 20 Jan & Sun 17 Feb, 1pm to 4pm
Clay is one of the most primitive and elemental materials. It offers endless possibilities for form making while allowing for the capture of imprints through surface memory, rendering textures and self-expression permanent. Animation, on the other hand, is the temporal display of a sequence of images in rapid succession so as to create the illusion of movement and sense of time.
This programme seeks to bring together the practices of clay sculpting and animation. Participants will learn basic clay sculpting techniques to create a sequence of objects or reliefs in clay. They will then be introduced to experimental stop-motion techniques to imprint these inanimate objects into a moving image.
No prior experience is needed and materials and tools will be provided. Participants should attend both sessions and will leave with a series of fired clay objects and a short animated clip. These workshops are suitable for ages 13 and above.
Venue: Chapel Gallery, Objectifs
When: 20 Jan - 17 Feb 2019, 1pm - 4pm
