Over this two day workshop students will learn how to make a support for your sculpture and sculpt a head in clay Using a live model. You will learn how to measure and place accurate features of the model's face so that you achieve a good likeness. Facial expression and details will be explored including textures and finishes. As well as having a model posing for this course, anatomical reference material will be available to assist with understanding the structure of the head.  You will get to bring home your creation at the end of the workshop

This course is ideal for anyone interested in exploring sculpting further.

( Materials included)


Materials are supplied for this course, it is recommended that you wear an old shirt and apron.

“I did stage 1 sculpture with Paul and it was brilliant. Nervous and tense to start but after the first week relaxed and sculpted my first head. Now doing stage 2, with a live model, and thoroughly enjoying it. Jen is a great model and the other ‘sculptors’ are fun to work alongside. Paul is a great teacher, very, very patient, always a smile on his face and makes a lovely cuppa !!! ”

About Paul

Born in Ireland. Paul has studied imagery in detail on a professional level for many years. He started in 1982 as a lithographer working for John Hinde, learning how to etch plates and following it on to the final print. His skill in the area of print was well recognised and he gained invaluable knowledge of the chemistry and mechanics of printing.

His fascination with sculpture started when he needed a three-dimensional model of Samuel Beckett to create new paintings so that he could light his subject from different angles. He went on to study Sculpture under Niamh Harding Miller and in the Irish Academy of figurative art under Dony MacManus. Paul also teaches Sculpture in Scoil Mhuire Clane and at www.sculpt4all.com

His work forms part of collections in Europe, America, China and Australia.


Class and workshop Terms & Conditions 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul most sincerely for this class [Clay Head Sculpting]. This was one of the finest classes I have taken and his teaching was kind, student-centred and grounded in deep subject knowledge. Paul’s humane approach allowed for positive and meaningful discourse and nurtured my own abilities while leading me in exploration of new methodologies
