Explore the body as a point of departure to develop figurative forms in clay and other materials with a contemporary perspective.

Be introduced to traditional methods of working with the body from a life model in the studio to establish a structural foundation from which to experiment with alternative approaches to reinterpreting the figure.

Caz Haswell opens you to the expressive qualities of the human body, and how it can be modified by exaggerating, distorting and altering individual elements by fusing and binding a variety of materials together to create truncated and elongated forms. Learn how to work with materials such as clay, and combine fabric, paper, clothing, polystyrene foam and detritus together to create an interpretation of the body that challenges conventional definition. Also experiment with the application of wax and latex to solidify forms.

Caz references historical and contemporary artists such as Rodin, Sarah Lucas, Berlinde De Bruyckere and Louise Bourgeois, inspiring you to create your own unique series of contemporary figurative sculptures.
