4-5 JULY 2024

Join internationally acclaimed sculptor Sergei Isupov for a two day workshop exploring the sculpted figure in clay and the painted surface – from the development of ideas to the materialization of form.

The workshop combines demonstrations with hands-on active studio time and one-on-one instruction. Isupov will lead students through demonstrations and include techniques of slab construction, underglaze painting, and glaze application as the three-dimensional sculpture serves as a canvas for narrative painting.

The workshop runs from 10 am to 5 pm both days.

Day 1 – Demonstration of slab construction and preparation of painting surface using simple tools
10 am to 1 pm: Demonstration of slab construction
1 pm to 2 pm: Lunch
2 pm to 5 pm: Participants sculpt their own forms with Isupov’s help and consultations.

Day 2 – Demonstration of underglaze stain and glaze application with an emphasis on using fine brushes to create clean lines
10 am to 12 pm: Demonstration of surface preparation, use of tools and brushes for underglaze painting, discussion of development of narrative.
12 pm to 1 pm: Lunch
2 pm to 5 pm: Participants use these techniques on their own sculptures with Isupov’s consultation.
