3day sculpting course- Portrait .Having wanted to do sculpture since school, centuries ago, I finally found a course. What a pleasure it was. The 3day course was brilliant. Sally ( the organiser) was so welcoming , and Miranda an excellent teacher. She encourages you to see things as they actually are,and enables you to translate them into your own piece of work. Beginners and experienced all blend together, and the day flies by!

Miranda is an excellent Tutor...so patient and encouraging even to total novices as I was! She really does help you to see 'around corners' and think around the work without it feeling too technically baffling. Sally always has the Studio up and running, it's such a light airy welcoming space with everything to hand that you need....including the kettle!
The three day course is brilliant because you can get totally immersed in the piece and see the process through to completion. Excellent value, excellant teaching .... and lovely relaxed friendly company!

It's a great space, the light is wonderful and there's plenty of room to work. The tutoring is excellent. It's so helpful to have a long working session and a variety of models, three different ones so far. The classes are well attended, there's a range of abilities and a very positive atmosphere. So there's plenty of encouragement for anyone who's at all lacking in confidence or experience. I've been attending sculpture classes for a while, and for me this is the most interesting and the most enjoyable. And the fees are really competitive.

The tuition is excellent and I have learned more in one class than I have in 4 other starter classes.
The variety of angles and tips have been invaluable amd I feel myself really improving.
It is really great value and we'll worth embarking on a course.
