Giacometti style bronzed animal sculpture one day workshop Suffolk one-to-one

Description

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. These are either 1-to-1 or a maximum of 4 people in each workshop. No experience is needed just a good imagination & plenty of enthusiasm. I use my light and airy studio set on the beautiful Suffolk landscape. It is situated next to a Monet style pond with heaps of Lilies in the Spring and Summer. 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.

What's included in the price?

All materials & tools provided.  I ensure each student has their own equipment. I like to create a spacious and calm environment.  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 20 to 30 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. Please contact me with any questions. Di

I am a professional artist and sculptor. I work in both 2d and 3d mediums. I recently was asked to do some workshops for a group of young students and I loved the experience of sharing my knowledge. I then went on to host a workshop as a hen day for friends of mine. This then led me here to continue the journey. Art is such an enjoyable subject. I regard myself to be so lucky to do what I do. I want to pass on the amazing feeling of pride and achievement that you can experience on these courses
