Wire sculpture courses, classes and workshops taught by independent artisans all across the UK. Want to learn the art of creating beautiful items and baskets out of wire? Wire sculpture course for beginners and more experienced wire workers.
We're excited to host the well-known wire sculptor, Chris Moss, at Swallows & Artisans. Chris uses a variety of metal materials, including new and recylced wire and mesh, to create stunning 3D sculptures particularly wild and domestic animals and birds. Chris has a love of nature and all her work reflects a detailed study of the anatomy and character of her subjects. Chris works on commissions and exhibits her work across the UK.

You will be supplied with an armature, air dry clay and modelling tools, leaving plenty of time to let your imagination run wild decorating your piece with a mixture of wire, paper, collage, and beads.
A wooden mount board is supplied but if you prefer you can bring your own.
