About the Course

Hello! I’m Richard from Twisted Earth Ceramics and I am based in West Yorkshire, just a short distance from Leeds and Bradford. I make hand-crafted animal sculptures, wall hangings and vessels, all of which begin life from a single block of clay.

Why not spend the day learning how to make a sculpture to be proud of using my technique that is fun, expressive and gets the results you want. The workshops are suitable for beginners or for those with some experience of handling clay.

The choice is yours- You can either choose between a Highland Cow, Moon Gazing Hare or for you cat lovers out there a Grumpy Cat Workshop.

The following workshops will run on the following dates and are very popular, so sell out quickly.

27th January- Highland Cow £59 (Now Full) £59
24th February- Moon Gazing Hare (Now Full) £59
24th March - To be confirmed soon £59 (Be quick to book this is a very popular workshop!)
