SCULPTING COURSES 2019
I coordinate sculpting courses in a quiet region in the middle of France. More specifically, in a barn in a tiny hamlet called 'Le Sioudray’, which is located in Urciers, région Centre, département Indre.
The course will proceed as follows:
- over the course of 3 days, we create a clay sculpture of a live, professional model.
- from that clay statue, we create a plaster mold.
- cement or plaster is poured into the mold.
- the plaster mold is chipped off (moule perdu).
- you have now created a sculpture!
Life on location:
In the meantime, you’re welcome to enjoy wonderful meals in the linden orchard or in the barn dining room.
The meals will be prepared by experienced chefs.
You’ll receive personal coaching tailored to your skills and personality.
The course is aimed at both beginners and advanced participants.
The purpose of the course: developing an eye for detail!
The course is quite intense, but the result (your sculpture) will be worth it.
This year, there are two available courses:
TORSO, life size, cast in cement or plaster
date of arrival: 04/07/2019 - date of departure: 14/07/2019

Concerning the annulment insurance: it may well be that you already have one. If not, we can order one for you , with an additional cost of 40€.
(We can do this only for people living in Belgium.)
ROOM AND BOARD
The price includes all food (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks) and drinks, a live model, all materials and lodging in a gîte in Néret, at 7 km from Le Sioudray. Why not take that opportunity to cycle or jog to the course location?
Camping in the orchard is also possible (please bring your own camping equipment). No discounts will be given to participants who choose this option.
In case you prefer more privacy and/or comfort, the Chambre d’Hôte La Maison Du Cerf also offers lodgings. Please contact Lucia Schouten directly for a fair quote on a room at the B&B. Please be advised that this is considered an additional cost: click here.
TRAVELING to Le Sioudray, 36160 Urciers , Région Centre, Département Indre, FRANCE
Because participants usually travel with quite some luggage, they normally come by car.
I always try to get people to carpool. It minimizes the strain on the environment and allows for sharing of highway tolls. In order to help you organise carpooling I'll send a mail to the participants with all the email-addresses. Please bear in mind that you need spare space for your sculpture on your way home.
If you prefer traveling by train, please contact me so we can arrange for a pick up/drop off service at Chateauroux station (nearly 50 km from Le Sioudray / cost of a one-way drive is 15€).
Please be advised that a train ticket is low-cost if booked 3 months in advance.
We can transport the sculptures of the train passengers back to Antwerp (address: my atelier in Hoboken).
If you’re interested in participating in one of these courses, please contact me at email@example.com, and wire an advance of € 250 to the following bank account:

If you cancel before 1 June 2019, your advance payment will be reimbursed.
From the 1 June 2019 on your registration can only be cancelled according the conditions of the annulment insurance.
The minimum number of participants is 6, with a maximum of 10. (If the number of inscriptions is insufficient, we cancel the course. Should this occur, we'll let you know one month in advance, and refund your money.)
