This is an intensive course and covers a lot in a short period. Notes need to be taken throughout as handouts will not be given. There are allocated times for Q&As so that you can ask what you need without deviating from the course timetable.

Working days will be 0930-1600 with small breaks throughout.

The studio is based in Exmouth which has great Train/Bus transport systems, with Exeter airport only being less than 10 miles away (Approx £20 taxi fare)
Parking is limited to the front of the studio to 30mins but there are all day/night parking available from £3.
As we are a seaside holiday resort there are many hotels available, one being a Premier Inn on the sea front which is approximately 10-15 mins walk to the studio.

Courses run on demand and will never have more than 4 people. If you want to come as a couple a small discount may be given if only one tool set is needed.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Tea and Coffee are available through the day but lunch is not provided. There are lots of cafes in the immediate vicinity or you are welcome to bring a packed lunch.

With the course you will leave with a kit of tools and materials so that you can start casting as soon as you are back home. You will also take all your casts from the course to use as samples/demos.
