Description Workshop Espace Dali

Find out about modelling techniques right at the heart of the Espace Dali, the only collection of its kind in France dedicated to the master of surrealism and home to over 300 sculptures, pictures and lithographies, each one more surprising than the last.

Your journey into a 3 dimensional world begins with an initiation into the terminology relating to sculpting. Your guide will go through the lost wax casting and the pâte de verre techniques. When talking about this substance, Salvador Dali said: "I am enthralled by this new material which has the molecular elasticity of a snail and the consistency of a station in Perpignan"!
You will examine his key works in detail, such as the famous Melting Watches, Alice in Wonderland, the Space Venus as well as the Lobster Telephone, in order to incorporate the basic principles of surrealism into your future creation.

Later, at the workshop, your imagination will direct your hands as they sculpt the clay to make your own surrealist sculpture. Just like a trainee modeller, you will spend an hour working on your Dali-style self-portrait.

Salvador Dali used to say: "The least one can ask of a sculpture is that is doesn't move. "
