The purpose of this workshop is to gradually get acquainted with the material, that is clay, its potentialities (possibilities), as well as with the fundamental concepts of sculpture, e.g. three-dimensionality, relationship to space. We will study and try to understand what shape is, proceeding from two-dimensional to three-dimensional space, paying special attention clay itself and its relationship to space.
We shall try to look at our surroundings in a different way, aiming to discover, observe (distances, proportions, stimuli) and finally relate to the material. We shall try to gradually enter into a creative process by means of the clay: from discovery and feeling to relationship with the other and with space and finally to communicate with the material.
