The three day Face construction course has just been completed with very favorable reviews. The course was attended by 6 consultants, 5 trainees and one sculptor. The faces created can be viewed in the gallery section - Fatima Kahn won the vote for the best sculpture. There were some subtle developments from the previous course- the wax was tinted, so no painting was required. The vessels and nerves of the face were constructed using prefabricated threaded and coloured wax, which facilitated speedier assembly and allowed for exquisite detailing ( as with the hand course). On the final day, sculptural modelling of a live subject, using hair for scalp, eyelids and eyebrows , as well as a choice of skin colours, completed the course on a creative high note.
