"What an amazing guy Roger is! Among the very best of all the tutors my husband and I have worked with. He is incredibly flexible, bringing his immense knowledge of metals and his creative flair to bear in helping us realise my design. He's also generously committed to continuing support, as we work to complete the sculpture. Absolutely brilliant day for us both."

Angie Heal reviewed: Sculpture workshop two days with Jo Garden Art in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

"This was a fabulous two day course. I had done one of Jo's hare kits at home, which is how I found out about her course. I did a 4 ft crane in the two days, and the rust / copper finish that Jo enabled me to achieve is fantastic. She is a great tutor, someone who shows you but does not do it for you which is always such a relief for me! The studio is exceptionally well equipped, Jo and Andy were very welcoming and the house and garden surroundings are beautiful, I would really recommend this course."
