Big Little Sculpture  

with Geoffrey Ricardo

Suitable for: PRIMARY

Session Times Available: (AM) Morning or (PM) Afternoon


Join Geoffrey in making small sculptural figures/models with a simple quick construction method. This process is ideal for exploring an image /idea.
We will be:

  • Building an armature on a base,
  • Working up figure
  • Moulding and building up a surface using tools and add-ons (impressing, attachments, finishing)

This workshop promises to be playful, fun, and simple!

About the Presenter
Geoffrey Ricardo studied printmaking as an undergraduate at Chisholm Institute of Technology in 1984 and later a Post Graduate Diploma 1989 and MFA 1994 at Monash University. While Printmaking was his focus, it was in 1989 that he began his first small scale bronze sculptures as a way of exploring and playing with ideas generated from his 2 dimensional work. Since first exhibiting in 1990 sculpture has increasingly become a part of Ricardo’s work. Ricardo’s body of work has included set design for Melbourne company Pocketfool, a children’s book, artist’s books and newspaper illustrations. He has lectured at several art schools and presented regular printmaking workshops since 1990. Ricardo has lived in Melbourne since 1984, has travelled overseas many times but keeps returning to Melbourne where he lives with too many cats. He has had many exhibitions, by himself, with others and keeps hoping the next exhibition will be better than the previous ones.
