GEORGE HOLLOWAY SCULPTURE CLASSES (article first published : 2008-05-19)

Sculptor George Holloway is launching a sequence of sculpture classes Monday evening, Thursday evening or Friday morning. These will take place in and around Durban and the aim is to fill the gap in sculpture training outside of tertiary institutions.

“I will begin with an introductory course that will teach the basic theory of sculpture and begin to explore mould and sculpture materials and tools,” explains George. “I will supply the materials for this course. During the course we will make simple press moulds, build geometric forms and sculpt a basic relief form to mould. These will be cast in plaster of paris, cement and Papier Mache. All moulds at this stage will be made in plaster of Paris. The only requirement is some old clothes or an overcoat.”

The first course will begin as soon as five or more people have signed on for the courses. George Holloway works from my home in Glenmore (below the Durban University Campus), but he is willing to move the course to any suitable place provided by a group of five or more prospective students. In this case, there will be a small transport charge that will be broken down over the number of students and added to the course cost.

The course will be made up of six classes of three hours each at R120 per lesson, ie R720 for the introductory course. Full payment is required for the course in advance to enable the purchase of material and to avoid any awkward situations around non/late payment.

“The next course will be an intermediate course that will explore the sculpting of more complex forms and thus more complex moulds,” continues George. “At this level we will still work with cement, Plaster of Paris and clay, but explore the complexity of working in three dimensions in more depth.”

The advanced course will be built around one complex project such as sculpting a bust from life in clay, making a mould in plaster, casting it in cement and finishing it for display
