Life Clay Modeling

Life Clay Modelling Timetable for 2018/2019:

Classes take place every Wednesday from 19:00 to 21:00.

Classes start on the 4th of September 2019.



The cost of a ten week course is €14 per night, payable in advance. Materials and model are provided at no extra cost.



‘The hollow reed’ sculpture modelled at the TAW studio illustrates the role of clay modelling in developing our observational skills. Through the earthy nature of clay, we can explore the body, and use composition, accuracy and form, to express tangible emotion and thought. Perhaps, through clay, we touch the nature of the soul. Certainly, the only qualification you need is a passion for art and a wish to explore the medium.

    Hi, a total beginner here but this interests me. Do you take total beginners? Would love to see if I might enjoy and be any good at this. Also, how many are in the classes? Could the 14 euro be payable per night or is it 10 x 14 paid on the first night? regards … Anne

    • admintaw says:

      Yes the class is suitable for any level. The classes run from Sept until May. You can pay per night. The class size can vary as it is a drop-in class. It is advised to arrive early to ensure you get a space.

    Are these classes still on? I went today to 191 Pearse Street and it was closed with the lights off. I am a total beginner but I would love to give this a go.
    Thanks in advance,

      Hello, our 191 Pearse St studio is currently closed for renovations. It is due to reopen in the new year but we do not have a set date yet. Once a date is set we will know when classes can resume and will post a notice regarding this.
