Want to gain a valuable new skill? Come along and learn how to sculpt with polymer clay!

Super Sculpey is a specialised oven-bake polymer clay, often used in the manufacturing of toys, jewellery, and figurines and can be cast in a variety of materials. In this course, you will learn how to sculpt with this high-quality product. You will also learn how to build a tinfoil and wire base (‘armature’), which will reinforce the structure of your creation, so it may survive the distance.

Whether you want to sculpt a character who has human features, is a fire breathing dragon, or is a sub-Saharan lizard, the world is your oyster (and your sculpture could be too!). It doesn’t necessarily have to be a character; you could sculpt any kind of object.

Sculpting with polymer clay is a fun way to relax and let your creativity loose. You can achieve an intricate level of detail, using a variety of tools. Sculpting is immensely helpful for those wanting to improve their drawing skills, as you will begin to understand objects in a 3-dimensional format. It also serves as a steppingstone for those planning to pursue a career in the film industry as creature designers, props makers, stop-motion animators, prosthetic make-up artists and more.

Tutored by talented Anya Gladstone-Gallagher.
