Hi! I'm Darla and I started the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym in 2011 with the help of a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
What is the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym you ask? It's a community based workshop space for artists that has a wood shop, metal shop, mold making and casting area, small foundry, classroom and gallery. It operates like a gym membership in that you pay a monthly membership fee for access to the equipment. We also offer classes in a variety of processes for every skill level.
What do I do? I'm a sculptor! I primarily sculpt animal forms, working first in clay, then making rubber molds for casting in plasters and resins.
