About This Class

This class will guide you to sculpt your very own mushroom sculpture. I will be using polymer clay and other media to color it : dry pastels and acrylic paints. It is a fun project that can be done in a couple of hours and is very versatile. No special skills required to try this class out!

This class will guide you through sculpting three types of mushrooms. It is build up in a chronological order, so you can easily follow along and bake when required.

1 - Learn how to make a quick sketch and decide up front how you are building up your sculpture
2 - How to sculpt the mushroom caps
3 - How to sculpt the mushroom stems
4 - Assemble cap + stems and add the gills
5 - Sculpt a flat fungus
6 - Make a base for your sculpture
7 - Finishing Touches

However, since we are going to use sharp tools, children need to be under the attention of an adult.

Stephanie Kilgast

Artist and Sculptor // aka PetitPlat

Inspired by natural forms, Stéphanie Kilgast grows colorful organic sculptures on abstract backgrounds, celebrating the beauty of nature and implying the impending doom caused by human activities.
She built her reputation around hyperrealistic miniature food sculptures and learned how to handle what would become her favorite medium, polymer clay.
With a focus on natural forms and often ethics, she worked on the « daily veggie challenge » in 2015, where she sculpted a different vegetable every day to present the vast quantity of edible plants, while encouraging to reduce our meat and animal products intake for environmental reasons. At the same time, to brighten her own mood, she keeps getting back to insects and surrealism in the “happy bugs” series.
