Sheena Ridley Sculpture Workshops

I offer two different sculpting workshops: Ferrocement Sculpture and Wax Sculpture.

The workshops are held at my home studio on a farm in the Klein Karoo and at Vermaaklikheid near Riversdale in the Western Cape. The Klein Karoo workshop is off the N9 (R62), 30kms before Uniondale or 80kms from George. Transport can be organised to and from George airport.
These are interactive courses, with comfortable accomodation available at both venues.

Ferrocement Sculpture Workshop

The Ferrocement sculpture is a process involving welding a steel armature, fine meshwork and layers of cement plaster with additives.

In this five day workshop we explore the making of a maquette. This is a small scale model or rough draft of an unfinished sculpture.
You learn the importance of armature and different applications of building up of form. The maquette will be about 30 x 20 x 20 cm in volume, keeping it small enough to cope with the four day limit. Texture, three-dimensional form and different finishes will be learnt in this workshop.
This maquette workshop is restricted to six students at a time.
