Large Outdoor Plaster Hare sculpture kit (60 - 75cm) with full video instructions

X

Description

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 do on the Jo Garden Art Two Day Sculpture Workshop, 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 easier than a smaller hare - honestly ๐Ÿค—. 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 is flexible and is easily developed into your own personal hare sitting 'pose' by you simply moving the ears, head, legs and tail. This way your hare need not moon-gaze, but could be looking over a shoulder, scratching 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 kit contains everything you need including a small glass vial for you to enclose a message or memento in the heart of your hare. Particularly poignant for moon-gazing hares. The standard colour is Bronze which is developed through bronze Powertex paint followed by a touch of a fabulous bronze gilt cream. Or you can choose a rich Obsidian Black colour for a more contemporary look. If you would like the Obsidian Black paint, please send a message when ordering. Please note the kit has a 30 mtr roll of strong foil included to create the body mass. Additional foil may be needed from your kitchen cupboard if you choose to make a 'chunky' hare ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Full written instructions with photos are included, as well as a link to a detailed video showing Jo creating a full-size bronze hare, providing step-by-step instructions, hints & tips. The video can be viewed as often as you wish and has an index of contents so you can skip to each step. This kit is suitable for any age group probably over the age of 14, but please note this is not a toy and children should be constantly supervised as there are sharp items, wire ends and products potentially hazardous to small children in the kit. Please note the kit should be used within 3 months of purchase as it contains plaster, paint and gilt. Due to the size & weight of the kit, parcel postage is for UK mainland only.

Welcome ๐Ÿค— 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 workshops and kits are broken down into small stages which result in amazing sculptures 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
