Make your own cat or dog ceramic workshop with Jill Collier

Very special pets created by very proud owners


Sculpture workshops are suitable for all abilities, including beginners and those that have experience and would like to improve. Starting from a slab of clay I will show you step by step how to hand build your animal creation, using various sculpting skills. Once your sculpture is complete you will be able to add colour with slips and underglazes.

Your completed sculpture will need to dry and then be fired in a kiln before you can collect it at a later date.

Workshops are 4 - 6 people.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Quality teaching from an experienced award winning sculptor.
All equipment, materials, glazes and firing.
Friendly and relaxed environment.
Based in rural Oxfordshire.
Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
You will need to bring your own lunch.

Fantastic day, we'll worth the money. Jill was so patient and reassuring with us, we all produced amazing pieces of art. Will definitely be going again. Thank you

Absolutely amazing course 😊 I was a complete novice having only used clay in my primary years at school many years ago! This course reintroduced clay to me with some amazing instruction and guidance from Jill, I produced a dog that actually does look like a dog 😁. Seriously if I can do this anyone can, give the courses a go you will not be disappointed.
