Giacometti, his work and methods

April 12, 2019 @ 7:20 pm - 9:30 pm

with Ed Rust. See edrust.co.uk.

Ed will be presenting a talk with a slideshow and a couple of short films about the Life and Work of Alberto Giacometti.
Normally non-members pay £3 at the door, but for this talk followed by a demonstration Hornsea Art Society is welcoming anyone who would like to come along for the evening for FREE
The demonstration will show how Giacometti made his armatures, what materials he used (clay, plaster) and how we can all reproduce these effects with modern day materials (plaster, filler, Modoc, foil, wire etc).  Three volunteers will attempt to paint a portrait in the style of Giacometti, while three other volunteers will be shown how to create typical Giacometti sculptures in plaster and clay. All materials are provided.
This talk and demo is the first of a series of four Ed is doing for this year’s Hornsea Art Festival – you can download the festival programme from the website on the Home page.
