Make a very special selfie by sculpting your own portrait in clay and silicone. This workshop, under the auspices of multi-talent Jolanta Izabela Pawlak, teaches you how to create a (self-)portrait.
Jolanta teaches the basics of sculpting and using carving tools. Working individually with each person on the technical part of creating with clay, Jolanta will teach ways to express your own characteristics. Sculpture permits the artist to break free from the concept of the “decorative” and focus more on the hidden inner message.
Jolanta will then show possibilities to use plaster and silicon molds for constructing 2-D forms in textile, paper, and found objects using bonding materials like resin, wax, glue, paint, and fabric hardeners.
Bring a black & white printed photo of yourself from mulitiple angles or just bring a mirror. Bring a plastic bag to carry home your portrait.
Workshop is in English.
