Kate French Workshop

Last weekend Tamborine Mountain - SEQueensland - sculptor Kate French ran an intensive workshop over three days at the MACG Workshops in Maleny.
Ten students from Maleny and beyond attended the class with Kate, going through the
sculptural process covering the subject of modeling a portrait bust, including the process of hand building the carcass of a sculpture, proportioning the basic shape, modelling facial features, hair, clothing, positioning the sculpture into a posture that reflects its subject, and finally adding texture to the sculpture to bring it up to a beautiful finish.
