Bronzed Giacometti style figurative sculpture one day workshop one-to-one

Work of art by Stephen


Welcome to my bronzed figurative sculpting workshops. Giacometti style .

This course is a bit more complicated than my animal one day work shop.

You can make a replica of a Giacometti sculpture, or just be inspired and original, in the way you work.

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. My studio is set in beautiful Suffolk countryside next to a Monet Style pond full of lilies.

These are 1-to-1 or maximum 4 people per workshop.

No experience is needed just a good imagination & plenty of enthusiasm.
. I will demonstrate and guide you through every step. This workshop is especially good for those that have already completed my animal workshop, or for those who prefer figurative art.

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.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

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 making a wire armature, 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.

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. Car parking is available. I have a friendly dog so please email me pre booking, if you have an allergy or dislike of dogs.

Please contact me with any questions. Di

I was given a "Giacometti-style" sculpture making course as a present and I have to say that it was fantastic! Di was great fun to chat with whilst she taught me how to make the sculpture. Di was very open to ideas on what I could make and helped me think through what was feasible in a day!

I am really pleased with the final piece that I created and and really liked Di's approach - as she guided me on how to do each step but didn't do the steps for me. She used a different sculpture to demonstrate the technique in a series of easy-to-follow steps and it worked really well.

Di also did a great job of keeping my progress on track so that I had a finished product at the end of the session - and did this is a very relaxed way, helped along with coffee and biscuits!

Response from Art on the Edge:

Thanks Steve. I really enjoyed meeting you and helping to create your Minotaur!!! Hope he's in pride of place.

My Mum and I had a fantastic day yesterday with Di under her expert guidance. Di made us very welcome in her great art studio which was full of ideas and inspirations. We both loved the experience and were very happy with our sculptures that we took home. Would definitely recommend this course- much fun and new skills!

Response from Art on the Edge:

Really enjoyed meeting you both. It was fun for me too. Thank you. Di

Do was welcoming, knowledgeable and gave me a great day. I learnt new skills that I hope to practice and extend at home.
Great day.
Thoroughly recommend!

This was a Birthday gift from a friend. What a lovely day I had with Di after months of lockdown. I made a lovely sculpture which is greatly admired and sits on my coffee table.

I am a big fan of Di's workshop. Her teaching is fun and simple to follow. She is patient and enthusiastic.
I have done both courses and bought one for my wife. You will come away thrilled with your sculptue.
