Christmas Gnome Workshop!
Choose to spend a day at Dallacre Farm set in beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, creating a Christmas Gnome sculpture (or Nisse/Tomte from Scandinavian folklore) using a fantastic non-firing clay, Pal Tiya Premium. You can also make a Witch or Wizard if you prefer as they’re a very similar process.
Weta workshop uses this product extensively to create large sculptures for private commissions and more.
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 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 is now in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and now here!
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! Because the clay needs a few days to harden, we will not be painting during the class. But you’re welcome to come back another day and paint them with our help, or you can paint them at home.
The beauty of Pal Tiya Premium is that what you make on the day can be taken home that same day as no kilns are necessary.
Note: If you cannot attend due to special circumstances, please contact us and we can book you on another event.
