Small Outdoor Plaster Hare Sculpture Kit (30cm) with full video instructions by Jo Garden Art



This Hare Sculpture Kit allows you to sculpt your very own moon-gazing or looking back hare which can be displayed in your garden as well as inside. No previous experience is needed! The kit contains exactly the same materials we use during the popular Jo Garden Art one day hare sculpture workshop. Depending on the pose, your hare will be 25 - 30 cm tall. We also have a fabulous large hare sculpture kit for a 60 - 75cm hare (see separate listing or press ‘more from this maker’ button). Each hare armature provided in the kit (aluminium wire hare skeleton attached to a steel stand) is handmade by Jo in her Suffolk studio. The flexibility of the armature allows you to personalise parts of your hare so it becomes truly unique to you (this is all explained in detail in the video). The head, ears, legs and tail can be moved easily in different directions during the initial stages of the sculpting process. Included in the kit is a small glass vial for you to pop a message or memento into the heart of your hare. You have complete control as to how skinny or chubby he or she is. Your hares pose could be moon-gazing, looking up or back, scratching an ear! Let your imagination go free ;-) The kit uses plaster and paint that are water resistant allowing you to display your hare outside, although protection during the winter months is recommended. This kit is suitable for any age group probably over the age of 12, but please note this is not a toy and children should be constantly supervised as there are sharp items and products potentially hazardous to small children in the kit. Please note the kit should be made within 4 months of purchase. Postage is to the UK mainland only. Jo Garden Art - find the joy of sculpting.

Welcome 😃 I'm Jo Garden. I call myself a 'facilitator' as my joy is enabling people of any skill to achieve something they did not expect, plus have time away from the everyday stresses of normal life. My sculpture & slate mosaic workshops are broken down into small stages which result in amazing sculptures and works of art regardless of your artistic ability (honestly). If you purchase a kit, there is a full length video of me making the sculpture which you can watch as many times as you wish. If attending a workshop, my peaceful studio is tucked into the garden surrounded by trees and wildlife making it a very tranquil and stress busting. I run several workshops a month but am often booked up for months in advance. If you book a long way in the future, I do make contact if I have cancellations and can move you forward. Please do not hesitate to message me if you have any questions. Jo x
