SCULPTURE RETREAT.  5TH-9TH September 2022. Sassari, Sardinia, Italy.

 An unique opportunity to get inspired under the Sardinian sun, working outdoors surrounded by a field of olives trees, and leaving your daily distractions behind to get immersed into three dimensional thinking.

Four days to boost your creativity and produce some art work under the tutoring and advice of artist Silvina Soria.  One-to-one support providing regular feedback, critique and constructive advice.

The aim of this 4 days’ workshop is to allow yourself to flow in the moment and unleash your creativity from a new perspective. We will discuss different techniques and explore new ways of conceiving sculpture and drawing. We will explore the space, the volume and different types of lines considering the light, shadows and interstices between the lines as part of the work as well. Techniques by addition or subtraction. Modelling with clay, soap carving, or drawing in the space with wire. Demonstrations followed by hands on.

These are tailored workshop so you will have the opportunity to both relax and disconnect from your routine and to connect with your inner expression.

All levels are welcomed. No experience required. Advanced students will work on personal projects and research new techniques and processes.

All daily sessions will start with a 10 minutes meditation, 20 minutes of sharing or writing, followed by an art practice session, nice vegetarian picnic with local eco veggies ( hopefully from the allotment on-site), more hands on practice after lunch and end up with a sharing moment along with a nice local fresh wine and cheese while enjoying the sunset. On the 5th day we will go on a boat trip so you can enjoy some of the marvellous coastline of the beautiful Sardegna and try it’s waters. Sunbathing, swimming and visiting one of the beaches of the Ribera dell Corallo .You are welcome to bring your watercolour set if you want to grab the moment and of course, your swimming costume!.
