Carving & Modelling Courses

Get inspired by City Lit’s sculpture courses in the techniques of carving and modelling, which take place in our purpose built, well-equipped sculpture studio in the heart of London. On our carving courses, you will transform a piece of wood or stone into your 3-Dimential design, exploring the characteristics of each material. Our sculpture modelling courses include working in a wide range of materials including clay, wax, plaster and papier mâché.

Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced practitioner who wants to refresh or develop their skills and knowledge, our courses give you the opportunity to take your work to the next level. Our hands-on courses are taught by specialist tutors whose teaching is enriched by their own artistic practice. You will be fully supported through practical demonstrations to the group and one-to-one guidance, in a friendly and highly creative environment.
