Kaspar, the Bohemian Poet with Elena Loukianova

4 lessons plus bonus class (PDF Files Only)
All Skill Levels 

Kaspar: Base 6 x 9 inches
Kaspar sits 6.5 inches tall (would be around 13 inches standing)

How better to express one’s feelings of love and passion than through reading and sharing a poem? Better yet – create your very own Bohemian Poet – KASPAR – a romantic soul and a dreamer! Surround yourself with flair of Bohemia. Get in the mood and share his eternal search for love and inspiration. 

A poet is the one who writes poetry, the dictionary tells us. However, for this particular piece I decided to sculpt a Poet Who Reads. I myself have always been a bookworm all my life. At school age of 12 or 13 I started to read a huge amount of books, including poetry, fiction, history and lots of other stuff. So I can completely relate to my character, Kaspar. And I know there are lots of you out there – book lovers.

Kaspar is a lonely “blue” poet, who seeks inspiration for his writings anywhere and everywhere, but mostly in the imaginative world of other writers and their creations. Books are his best friends. 

If you never had a chance to try air dry clay, like Creative Paperclay, here is your perfect chance – we will be using this wonderful modeling material to create Kaspar, from head to toe. But we will not stop there, we will be using fabrics, beads, wood, paper, etc. Sculpt, paint, dress, wig and accessorize your very own Bohemian Poet – KASPAR! Make miniature books with a variety of materials – leather, paper and clay.
We will make his wonderful silk shoes, his jacket/vest, decorated with lace and multiple golden beads as well as his trendy “old” hat. We will paint his tender features with a few very fun techniques which later you will be able to use on your own creations.

The class also includes the making of the miniature book which Kaspar is reading for inspiration. The book contains one of the poems by Lord Byron and measures less than 2 inches tall! It is made with paper, leather, threads and even beads. 

Prop books are made with polymer clay and also demonstrated in the class. You will receive inspiration to create your own tiny clay books.
So join me in this fun and poetic class!
