Intro To Sustainable Sculpture

Introduction to sustainable and environmentally friendly techniques and concepts for making sculpture through the inherent beauty of natural materials.

Who is this course for

A new workshop exploring ways to make and finish pieces of sculpture using techniques and materials that are sustainable and eco-friendly.
This course is accessible to all people regardless of age or level of experience.

What does this course cover

Experiment with materials and techniques that have a minimal impact on the environment and are as much as possible sustainable.
By the end you will:
Make finished pieces of sculpture that could be described as green, environmentally sensitive and aware.
Know the work of artists working in related ways.

What will it be like

Students will be encouraged to analyse, interpret, appraise and evaluate their own work. This may take the form of a group discussion or individual consultation with the tutor or fellow students. Assessments are geared to meet individual needs as appropriate.

What else do you need to buy or do

You will need to buy very little as we will be sourcing natural and sustainable materials such as Wood, Soapstone or Clunch from indigenous or local sources wherever possible.
We will also recycle materials such Clay, Papier mache' and explore the use of found objects and scrap.

What this course could lead to

Students can progress to any non-accredited and accredited courses at Mary Ward Centre, including Pre-foundation/ Foundation into Art and Advanced Practice for Artists and Designers courses.
