About the Course

Castles Workshop!

Choose to spend a day at Dallacre Farm set in beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, creating a unique Castle sculpture using a fantastic non-firing clay, Pal Tiya Premium. The Castles will be made with a jam jar inside, this means it will have real glass windows and allow the possibility to put lights inside even when it’s kept outdoors.

Weta workshop uses this product extensively to create large sculptures for private commissions and more.

Ideal class for complete beginners, or more experienced sculptors that want to learn the techniques of this exciting new material.

Learn how to sculpt the core in tin foil and other materials before applying the product. As our clay doesn't shrink during the curing process, there is scope to use it over items such as glass jars etc that just isn't possible with normal clay.

Come to a day workshop to learn the techniques and explore the possibilities with this exciting new product, which is now in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and now here!

The product is simple and fun to use and you can take your piece home that same day! It will last outdoors in all weather as it has passed freeze/thaw testing and is incredibly strong! Because the clay needs a few days to harden, we will not be painting during the class. But you’re welcome to book in to come back another day and paint them with our help, or you can paint them at home.

Class includes tutoring and all materials required. BYO Lunch (microwave available). Tea, Coffee, Water and Juice available!

The beauty of Pal Tiya Premium is that what you make on the day can be taken home that same day as no kilns are necessary.
