A wonderful course. Learn-as-you-go in a relaxed atmosphere. Be inspired by Beatrice's works which are displayed everywhere and by the talent of fellow students. Beatrice is encouraging, straight talking, knowledgeable, patient and kind, I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 days and I learned so much. Highly recommend it. Alexandra '

Following a break from making sculpture, Beatrice's 2 day course was the perfect way in which to 're immerse' myself back into making. Beatrice is incredibly attentive and helpful, offering constructive feedback in a supportive and encouraging way. The small group sizes also enable sufficient opportunity for one-to-one support and in depth conversations about the sculpture making process, as well as group discussion. Thank you very much - I am so glad I decided to attend the course and look forward to hopefully signing up for more!

Our family (2 adults + children aged 9 and 11) attended 2 days of summer workshops and had the best time. Beatrice is an encouraging and patient teacher and we all learned a lot and created things we didn’t think we were capable of. And yes it was great fun for all ages! highly recommended

My friend and I had a really enjoyable day. The group was small, about six of us ranging in age from about 14 to seventies, making for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We were all completely absorbed in our projects, with Beatrice on hand providing support, timely insights and technical advice whenever needed, all in the beautiful environment of her sculpture-filled garden. The time flew and I came away feeling completely inspired. A truly satisfying experience, which I would highly recommend. Thank you Beatrice, it was wonderful!

We enjoyed a birthday sculpture workshop with another family to celebrate my son's 10th birthday. We were a cosy group of five people -2 adults and 3 kids - and it was the perfect size. A fantastic way to engage kids in purposeful activity under the encouragement and tuition of a skilled sculptor that is Beatrice Hoffman. Highly recommended to kids and adults who are interested in experiencing the joy of creating clay objects with their hands.
