In this two-day workshop, instructor Olivia Rodriguez will demonstrate a variety of material techniques used in building sculpture and discuss the sculpture process, from armature building and form buildout to resolving the finished surface.

Students will view photographs of works in progress as well as work samples. The instructor will demonstrate possible outcomes of adhesive techniques on varied surfaces, including successful and unsuccessful outcomes.

Participants will receive a guide to unconventional materials and a history of their use.

Materials demonstrated and discussed in the workshop will include:

  • Armature: wire, paper, wood, PVC pipe, and foam
  • Rough form buildout: ceramic, paper mache, plaster, fiberglass, polymer, wood putty/spackle
  • Finishing forms with surface and texture applications: ceramic, polymer and epoxy clay, glaze, pigment, and dry medium/texture application

This workshop is offered through VisArts’ Center for Craft Studies. Registration is underwritten by a grant from the Windgate Foundation.
