Bronze Hare Kit using air-drying clay - including on-line video with Jo Garden Art
Everything you need to create your own fabulous bronze finished hare sculpture at home! NB: there are also 'Sleeping Cat' and 'Faithful Dog' sculpture kits - press the 'More From This Maker' button at the bottom of this page to see the information. Coming from the Jo Garden Art studio where we usually have in person workshops (see the 'Hare Sculpture Workshops' and 'Two Day Sculpture Workshops' here on the Craft Course Website), this kit has been lovingly put together by Jo. The kit comes with written instructions (with photos) as well as a link to a YouTube video showing Jo explaining the complete process. No previous clay sculpture experience is expected as Jo will show you each step in detail. The basic form of the hare (the 'armature'), included in the kit, is individually handmade by Jo in her Suffolk studio. The head, ears and tail can be moved into whatever pose you would like before you apply the clay. Names can be scribed on the base of your hare to make it even more personal. You will usually take about 90 minutes to sculpt the hare using the quality air-drying clay over the unique armature. Your hare is either left to air-dry over 24 - 48 hours, or popped into an oven for 90 minutes! You then use the provided paint and gilt cream to evolve your hare into a beautiful bronze finish. Also on sale is a cost saving 'party' pack for 4 people (£89 - press 'see more by this course organiser' button). So your family or friends can enjoy creating hares together in the morning - perhaps having lunch whilst they are 'cooking' in the oven' - then finishing the hares in the afternoon. Fabulous fun and enjoyed by any age group (please note young children must be supervised). Jo guarantees no two hares will be the same! Please note - the kit should be made within 4 months of purchase. These wonderful hares are for enjoying inside as the air-drying clay prefers not to endure soggy weather ;-) Jo Garden Art - for amazing experiences! NB: Postage is for mainland UK only - please make contact if outside this area.

Welcome 😃 I'm Jo Garden. I call myself a 'facilitator' as my joy is enabling people of any skill to achieve something they did not expect, plus have time away from the everyday stresses of normal life. My sculpture & slate mosaic workshops are broken down into small stages which result in amazing sculptures and works of art regardless of your artistic ability (honestly). If you purchase a kit, there is a full length video of me making the sculpture which you can watch as many times as you wish. If attending a workshop, my peaceful studio is tucked into the garden surrounded by trees and wildlife making it a very tranquil and stress busting. I run several workshops a month but am often booked up for months in advance. If you book a long way in the future, I do make contact if I have cancellations and can move you forward. Please do not hesitate to message me if you have any questions. Jo x
