All classes are small (max 5) so that each student receives lots of attention. Come and learn unique skills in a friendly, social setting.

Dean’s sculpture courses are so rewarding. I really look forward to my classes and have learnt so much about technique and the process of making sculpture. He is a great teacher, very patient and the classes are fun and all inclusive. No matter whether you are experienced at working with clay, or just a beginner you will be made very welcome. Great learning environment and very enjoyable.

I was given a short course as a present and was just expecting to make a small thing and move on. Dean encouraged me to make a detailed sculpture that I thought would be out of my league being a novice. The short course finished and I've stayed on. Thoroughly enjoying working with clay, Dean's a great teacher, I've learned so much in a short time and I'm really pleased with my creation.
Always interesting discussions with the other students there, and the time just flies!
Definitely recommend!

This is a lovely light welcoming studio. Dean is a very accomplished sculptor and a great teacher. I thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants to do some interesting and varied sculpture even if you have never done it before like myself. It is so relaxing and rewarding to create something with your hands

I love this course! Dean has enabled me to understand sculpting techniques, encouraged me to experiment with form and finish effects and introduced me to the world of professional sculptors.
Creating is a deeply satisfying and fulfilling experience which Dean is able to guide and enhance individually throughout the sessions. Tea, coffee and always cake in good supply, time flies and, I’ve made new friends!

Dean's classes are thoroughly enjoyable and have opened up new creative avenues for me personally. He took my basic skills and enabled me to create wonderful pieces that I am now proud to display in my home. Highly recommended.
