Create your own stunning life-sized hare sculpture which is weather resistant so can live in your garden. No previous experience is required! Using all the same products as we use on the Jo Garden Art One and Two Day Sculpture Workshops, this kit allows you to make full size (60 - 75cm, depending on ear position) moon-gazing, looking back, or looking wherever hare! This may look daunting as it is quite large - but it's actually less fiddly than a smaller hare - honestly 😄. Using 9 metres of aluminium wire, the hare armature supplied in the kit is hand made by Jo in her Suffolk studio, so no two hares are ever the same. The armature ears, head, legs and tail are flexible and easily moved into your own personal hare sitting 'pose'. This way your hare could moon-gaze, look over a shoulder, scratch an ear, have ears up, out, down or with twists and bends! The video shows how to move the wire armature around into the poses. The hare is made in stages, so can be created gradually over two or more days if you wish. Each stage is shown in detail on the video and written instructions with Jo explaining tips and techniques. You can watch the video as many times as you wish and there is a detailed timeline showing the various stages for you to jump to. Included in the kit is a small glass vial for any personal message or memento you wish to bury into the heart of your hare. The specialist plaster and paint finish is completely waterproof, so your hare can reside outside. The armature is attached to a heavy steel base which stops your hare falling over in the wind. This kit is suitable for any age group probably over the age of 14. Please note this is not a toy and young children should be constantly supervised as there are sharp items, wire ends and products potentially hazardous in the kit. A 30 cm rotating turntable (cake turntable / lazy susan) is very handy. I can include one (the same as we use in the workshops) for an additional £15. Please message me if you wish to have this and I will set up a special purchase. Please note the kit should be used within 3 months of purchase as it contains plaster, paint and gilt cream. Storage of kit should be in the home (not garage) and raised off the floor. This is just one of a range of sculpture kits available - look at More From This Maker and press 'All Listings' to see the full range. Due to the size & weight of the kit, parcel postage is for 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
