At the heart of Proposition Studios there will be a 1500ft2 professional sculpture workshop operated by a team of technicians who will teach workshops, assist with projects and show artists how to safely use the facilities and machinery. Workshops will range from introductory courses in welding, mould-making, bronze casting, casting in concrete and plaster and modelling in wax.
Courses will be open to the public to book and studio artists will be able to attend for a discounted price. Studio artists will be able to use the facilities and will be given support from technicians for an allocated number of hours per month as part of their monthly studio rental fee. Artists who wish to offer support as studio technicians may be applicable for extended workshop hours.
The sculpture workshop will include a fully equipped wood and metal workshop with a separate mould-making area. There will be a range of professional quality electrical and hand tools and personal protective equipment.
