I have been attending Ivan’s drawing and painting class for a number of years and started as a complete beginner. In his class I have used pastels, ink, charcoal, watercolour, acrylic, gouache, oil and any combination of media. Ivan’s coaching has given me the confidence to work with any medium and any subject. Nothing is wrong and there are no rules. I would encourage anyone to join one of the classes.

I've been attending Ivan's sculpture classes for just over a year now and have found these classes to be a fantastic route to expressing my creative side. I went along as a total beginner. Ivan is very supportive and helpful with regard to idea development and the technicalities of creating your vision. I have worked in both clay and wire so far, but there are many more mediums to explore. I find my time there to be both challenging and relaxing, and I gain inspiration not only from Ivan but also from fellow class members. I highly recommend this course.

I have been attending Ivan's sculpture classes for several years and find his studio an inspiring and nurturing space to make artworks. Ivan is a patient and extremely knowledgeable tutor who knows when to help with ideas and when to let you just get on! Ivan's knowledge of all kinds of art techniques and artists has really helped me develop my own work- often in surprising ways!

I have been studying with Ivan for many years and continue to find inspiration and a sense of my artist self not always present in my daily life. Ivan's intuitive ability to help you find the ideas that you want to pursue enable you to produce diverse and fascination pieces of work that you didn't know you were capable of.

I have attended Ivan Daggett's sculpture classes for many years and find Ivan an excellent tutor. He has the ability to draw ideas from you without forcing you to his copy his own way of working. He is a very talented sculptor and can give guidance on the great variety of materials that can be used for sculpture. During my time attending his classes I have carved stone,wood and plaster, modelled with clay and worked with wire, both in abstract and human form.5
