Fine Art Model Making
Join artist and model maker, Dale Wells, for a series of workshops aimed at starting you on the path to creating, and painting, your own miniature worlds. Whether you’re a seasoned modeller, or an absolute beginner, these sessions are designed to enthral and inspire in equal measure. In these workshops, you will create an intricate, card structure from household materials, a desolate waste ground, a brutalist rampart, and a mired pig! Whether you’re a hobbyist, an artist, or anything in between, come along and create some stunning works.
Session 1: Putting together complex structures from simple card. Versatile, effective and essential for any modelling project.
Session 2: Discover scale woodworking by constructing a highly atmospheric, dilapidated structure across a scenic base.
Session 3: Learn how to inject character into foam board buildings with texturing, weathering and detailing techniques.
Session 4: Add living creatures to your models with the aid of your very own wallowing pig diorama.
All materials and tools supplied. Additionally, you will keep the finished piece and take home some suggestions for building upon what you have made!
