Baldock uses this elaborately rudimentary technique to explore a contemporary kind of ‘primitivism’. Looking at different cultures from all over the world, his figures are adorned with all manner of exotica - florets and bijoux, armour plates, and masks. In this workshop, participants will learn about the artist and his way of sculpture making, how to prepare their salt dough, and how to shape it into a portrait.
