Sculpture using Armatures

Model figures, animals or abstract forms using chicken wire.

An armature is a structure used as a base for a sculpture. Once the armature is made, it can be covered with a variety of materials including traditional papier maché, paper clay, plaster bandages (modroc) and cement.

First, you will work out an idea for your sculpture. There are plenty of books on artist’s work to help you or bring an idea with you. The next step is constructing an armature made of chicken wire based on your sketches/ideas.

The basic course is an introduction to the technique and a starting point for more intensive projects. We can talk about the extent of your project at the start of the course.
