Work with a variety of materials such as clay, wire, wax and wood, to explore sculptural themes and forms. Through a series of exercises and taking inspiration from a model, West Dean's surrounding landscape, music or your own emotions, experiment with how materials can express these ideas and forms. There is then plenty of time to pursue a longer study in a chosen field.
