Welcome to my bronzed Animal Sculpting Workshops. Giacometti style animals. You will go home at the end of the day with a beautiful unique piece of art.
This course is a wonderful way to relax and forget the worries of the world. Art is fantastic for ones mental health. You will unwind and time will fly.
About the coronavirus :
These are now 1-to-1 workshops or with a bubble buddy.
All co-vid rules will be met and implimented.
I will provide water and coffee gloves and sanitizer.
No experience is needed just a good imagination & plenty of enthusiasm.
I use a light and airy studio set on the beautiful Suffolk coastline. Some times I use my warm and cosy craft room.
I will demonstrate and guide you through every step as you start to create a magical animal such as a boxing hare, a playful puppy or cool cat.
My courses are run on demand.
If you have a specific date in mind please contact me. I am happy to do special occasions and add bubbles and cake.
All materials and tools are provide. I ensure each student has their own equipment. I like to create a spacious and calm environment.
I am also available to teach one or two day courses at your chosen venue (please contact me for pricing and number of students)
Separate dates can be arranged for larger groups, memorable hen parties and positive team building events (please make contact for details).

I take payment via PayPal or bank transfer. A £ 50 deposit is required to secure a place. This is non refundable but is transferable to another date or venue.

What's included in the price?
All materials & tools provided.
We start with a wire armature that has been prepared for you. Then go on to plaster and a bronzed resin. Later in the day we will make an armature together so you can understand the technique.
You can choose the animal from Hare.. Dog or Cat to start working on. If you have a preferred choice of animal we can make that together out of wire in the afternoon. (you can take this home also)
Your piece will be totally unique and finished to take home by the end of the day.
Plenty of tea, coffee, water and biscuits available throughout the day. Lunch is 30 to 40 minutes, please bring your own packed lunch.
My studio is friendly, fun and relaxing, suitable for all abilities and please contact me if wheel chair access is needed. Car parking is available. I have a dog that often join in so please email me pre booking, if you have an allergy or dislike of dogs.
Also for wheelchair access as there are 10 steps to the front door.
Please contact me with any questions. Di
Having met Di before I was excited to see her work in a professional capacity, and she doesn't disappoint! A wonderful, enthusiastic and fun tutor. As someone who doesn't consider themselves very creative I was so pleased with the cat I made. Will definitely be back for more!
A great, enjoyable workshop. Perfect combination of information, practical and group interaction. Di is brilliant and supported my initial, hesitant attempts. I left feeling very confident,pleased with my artistic experience and a beautiful bronzed dog. I am definitely returning and intend to challenge myself with a sculpted hare for the garden.

Thank you Karen.
Hope he is sitting in your summer room looking at the garden. Di :)
Lovely workshop. I didn't think I would be any good at sculpture as I mostly paint. But I really enjoyed making my hare. I will continue with this craft as you don't need expensive equipment to achieve nice work. I recommend this for 2d painters. A.

Really enjoyed meeting you. Great work :)
I made a fabulous hare. Di took us through stage by stage and it was much easier than I thought. She did help with the wire work which brought the sculpture alive. It's really good fun and we all got on so well. I feel I've made some new friends. I want to do the 2 day workshop next.
Brilliant workshop. Di is an excellent teacher. I came away with a fabulous bronzed dog. We had such fun and I feel I have achieved so much. I'm definitely coming back with some friends. I have bought it as gift for my mums birthday. Thanks Di, he's in the garden.

Thank you so much. I am so pleased you enjoyed it. See you in June. :)
