One day sculpting experiences are now available to book. Even if you never even touched clay before this experience will take you from complete novice to creating your first sculpture that you can take away and love for ever.

Still need to be convinced?
I believe everyone can be create Given the right materials, environment and most importantly the right teaching…. I have developed my own philosophy of engaging people with their own creative potential. Who knows it could change your life for the better… It certainly has for some who have experienced this form of creative expression.

Allow yourself the time to get lost in the creative process, then in the evening go for a walk along one of the local beaches or explore our magical 50 acre woodland.

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?

The day will start with a coffee, introductions….and a chat about what you want to do, then its hands on. You’ll follow my lead for the first hour, by then you’ll understand my philosophy and methods and you‘ll be away.

The atmosphere is light and there is no fact it's very relaxing..

Your main piece will be a life size study of a human head using a special armature called a ‘Skullature’ …but of course if you want to make something different simply contact me and we’ll discuss it.

We will explore a whole range of techniques to give you the desired effect

In-person course
Max Nash - - #32197

I was lucky enough to experience two of Richard's courses. In the first I went along to Richard's studio to sculpt a life size head and even though I had had very little experience in working with clay the methods that I was shown are so accessible I had no problem in getting stuck in and creating a work the I was so proud of. I also have to say Richard is so personable and kind in his approach, we chatted about so much and it was also a good laugh.
Then on the next day I went along to Richard's woodland and did the forest bathing experience..... so good, I would recommend this if you're feeling a bit frazzled by life, it's so calming I felt so relaxed after it. Definitely give it a try.

Response from Sculpture Workshop:

Hi Max, thank you for your kind words. I loved your enthusiasm for the sculpture and your delight at the beautiful woodland.. I hope you are continuing to sculpt at home, I look forward to seeing your next creation.

I was a complete beginner but wanted to do something totally outside my comfort zone, I couldn't have chosen a better course. Within an hour of meeting Richard I was sculpting my first head, I also found it so therapeutic which I really needed. I loved every part and was able to take my sculpted head away with me. Totally Recommended.

Response from Sculpture Workshop:

Hello Joshua. Thank you for the lovely review and for your enthusiasm and for embracing your creative potential. I really hope you can find the time and space to continue sculpting, you have my contacts so call if I can be of help.
