"THE SCHOOL OF LIFECASTING"


"THE SCHOOL OF LIFECASTING"

The School of Lifecasting is a huge success we have had people from all over the world come to be trained by Ken in the skills of Lifecasting.

Just in the past year we have had students young and old come from as far as USA, Abu Dhabi, India, Australia, Canada and Spain as well as all over Europe and the UK. They are taking back to their country all the skills that will get them started in setting up their own businesses and a new life.

If you think you would like to have a go then either give us a call or e-mail us and we will send you images of our work and details of courses, prices and what you get. One thing we can promise you is that you WILL NOT be disappointed. Ken gives more than 100% to all his students.

After 47 years in the industry you are in safe hands.

LATEST TESTIMONIAL




I recently completed the 5 day one to one tuition at the School of Lifecasting
and can  highly recommend this course.  I had seen other courses advertised 
but if I was going to learn anything, I wanted it to be from the Master. 
The course content was everything it had promised to be and I loved every minute.
Ken's vast experience, impressive portfolio and passion for his craft left me 
feeling inspired, satisfied and above all, excited for the future.
The lovely Jenny, Ken's better half, looked after us beautifully and I plan 
to return in future for further expert tuition. Thank you Ken and Jenny for
a wonderful insight into the art of Lifecasting and a truly enjoyable experience.

M FLOWER


We have hundreds of letters from our students with nothing but praise thanking
us for having a wonderful time during their course and for taking home with them
some beautiful lifecasts and so much knowledge also a new beginning doing 
something they enjoy and love knowing we are still here to help and support
them always. 

Why not come to see for yourself!. You WILL Love it.

"THE SCHOOL OF LIFECASTNG" - KEN CLARKE


"THE SCHOOL OF LIFECASTING" -  KEN CLARKE

We have been so honoured to have so many fantastic people come to us from all over the world. They are coming to learn the skills of "Lifecasting" and who better to teach them but Ken who has over 45 years experience. Ken gives much more than 100% to all his students and they go away happy and ready to start their own business with our full support.

Our last student came to us all the way from Philadelphia, U.S A and in his own words this is what he wrote for us to put on the blog. It was a pleasure Albert we will meet again. Never give up on your dreams.




I was born and raised in Tashkent, Uzbekistan (former Soviet Union). 
In 1988, at the age of twenty-five I moved to the United States. I managed to establish a business over the years. I was never able to draw in my life, let alone sculpt. In 2014, I was playing with clay (plastilina) and made my first baby hand. Since then I haven't stopped sculpting.
 
Over eighteen months I have learned to work with silicone, liquid plastic resin and making casting molds. I have watched many Youtube tutorials about life casting until I came across lifecasting with Ken Clarke. I was very impressed by his work and since then have stopped watching the other classes. I spoke with Jenny on the phone and signed up for a five day "one on one" class four months in advance.  
 
 On February 7, 2016 I walked into a studio and what I saw was beyond my imagination. Ken is a very professional, disciplined and skilled sculptor. He repeated each step he taught me over and over again. I believe that I still have much to learn, but what Kenny has taught me is enough to keep going. I want to thank Ken for all of the things he taught me, and I hope we will meet again because I still have a lot to learn. Also a special thanks to Jenny for providing me with all the written materials that I have learned over the five day course. Love you guys!!!!!!!!!!!!! Albert.

"BODY SCULPTURE" GOES TO "SEXPO"


"BODY SCULPTURE" GOES TO "SEXPO" OLYMPIA 13 - 15th Nov 2015

We had a great show and a warm welcome from all those visiting. The show that has taken over from Erotica which we did for 13 years. We met old and new clients and have made new connections so for us it was a huge success and will be exhibiting again next year.

We would like to share just a few photos of our stand with you and also show you a couple of images of our latest beautiful reclining lifecast called "Isadora" crafted in the summer of 2015 by Ken Clarke (Lifecaster)

The Concept was taken from Pre-Raphaelite 1848. The Model was Violet and it was photographed throughout the whole sessions by David Betts Photographer.

It took 3 months to complete and took 8 moulds, 8 plaster casts and 8 weeks to assemble and build. We are thrilled will the finished sculpture. It feels like silk or porcelain and is the largest lifecast created in the world. We are now offering this
                                                      FOR SALE
 and you are welcome to come along to see it in all its glory.

Ken Clarke - Winner of special Achievement Award from "JADE MAGAZINE"


WINNER - KEN CLARKE
 
The winner of this year’s JADE Special Achievement Award is sculptor,
erotic art photographer and former joint founder of the Guild, Ken Clarke. A man of many talents with a huge passion for his art, Ken has been an active supporter of JADE since the outset and his outstanding contribution to the first decade of The Guild helped to shape the organisation. In presenting this award we pay tribute to Ken’s dedication, his artistic flair, imagination, skill and undoubted creativity. Few artists can boast creative expertise in both sculpture and photography, yet he has shown that a love of the genre can produce a sensual feast for the senses of both touch and sight.

MEET US AT SEXPO ART EXHIBITION IN lONDON OLYMPIA


BODY SCULPTURE TO EXHIBIT AT SEXPO IN NOV 15
 
"
 Body Sculpture" will be exhibiting at Olympia, Earls Court for the Sexpo Exhibition  on 13th, 14th & 15th Nov 2015. This will now take place of the Erotica Show Exhibition that we attended for 13 years. We are very excited and hope that our past clients and friends will attend.
 
Please Read:
 
The organisers have a combined experience of over 50 years in the adult industry and will use that experience to deliver only highest quality entertainment and stage performances as well as "latest trend" seminars and workshops. We also have an expert in house staff including a dedicated PR and social media marketing team who will be constantly pushing the Sexpo UK messaging for the next 10 months. The event will not be a direct carbon copy of the Australian Sexpo series as not all of the entertainment, stage shows and activities translate for the UK audience - but it will have the famed "rock concert" atmosphere, energy and production values that has made Sexpo the biggest adult exhibition brand in the world.
 
Look forward to seeing you there as we have something very special for the show..
 
Ken & Jenny

"BODY SCULPTURE" TO GIVE ON-LINE ONE DAY "LIFECASTING COURSES" FOR STUDENTS ABROAD


"LIFECASTING COURSES" FOR STUDENTS ABROAD

A couple of months ago we were approached by a lovely lady in Australia who asked us whether she could do one of our courses from "The School of Lifecasting" on-line. At first we were unsure as our courses are very much hands on but because she was unable to travel to the UK we decided we would try and do this for her and it has been very sucessful.

We were able to answer all her questions and put her on the right road to success. So if there is anyone out there that is interested in our on-line consultancy course we would be happy to help. Please e-mail us at enquiries@bodysculpture.uk.com  and we can take it from there.

Ken has been consulting for Film & TV for several years more on the past movies and present day now applying these skills of communication and knowledge of all materials and their application for the International and TV Industries and now finds it is fit to apply this to his client base students and the wider public UK & Overseas.
