Clay animal sculpture course

Clay sculpture group


Create your own realistic moon gazing hare, elegant cat, wise barn owl or animal of your choice at one of our one-day specialist clay sculpture courses. Complete beginners are very welcome.

You will be given step by step guidance by Miranda, a professional figurative sculptor and tutor with over 20 years of experience, to help you create your own lifelike clay animal to take home with you, or you may leave it to be fired and collected later.

Our workshop space is within the historic Model Farm complex of the beautiful stately home of the Giffard family, Chillington Hall. We work outside in the courtyard in warm weather or indoors in the large studio space otherwise.

This is a great course where I learned lots of new techniques for modelling with clay to create a sculpture that I am proud of. Miranda is a brilliant tutor who helps every step of the way, instructive and encouraging. A really lovely day with a very friendly group, thank you.
