About the Course

The product is simple and fun to use and you can take your piece home that same day! It will last outdoors in all-weather as it has passed freeze/thaw testing and is incredibly strong!
Christmas is coming
A day of creative activity makes an excellent present. Gift vouchers are available.
If you want to book your own date for a group (2 to 6) please feel free to contact us - we are very accommodating, we can negotiate a day to suit you.
Pal Tiya Premium, is a sculpting material that has the “working feel” close to that of a fine clay. It cures to stone-hardness without firing, is very strong, and is designed for extreme outdoor conditions. Due to its strength when dry, the material only needs a basic armature to sculpt over, even at large (seven foot tall) scale.
Learn how to sculpt the core in tin foil and other materials before applying the product. As our clay doesn't shrink during the curing process, there is scope to use it over any items, such as glass jars etc that just isn't possible with normal clay. Come to a day workshop to learn the techniques and explore the possibilities with this exciting new product, which was developed in New Zealand, introduced to Australia, USA and now here!

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

Want to review this course?

We had a great day. I booked the course as a surprise for my daughter who is very stressed with her job. The day whizzed by, she never thought about work once and at the end said her pumpkin was the best thing she'd ever made - a big compliment as she has done quite a few handicrafts.
Bob and Joe were both lovely and we chatted away easily all day long.
My daughter made a Halloween pumpkin with lots of advice about how to do the 'scary' features and I made a pumpkin for an Autumn display.
Highly recommended, thank you.
