Chris Lewis reviewed: Giacometti style bronzed animal sculpture one day workshop Suffolk one-to-one

"I thoroughly enjoyed the day long Giacometti sculpture course. Di was the perfect host and the whole experience took me back to the little bit of sculpture I did at art school many years ago. The studio is set in beautiful surroundings and being away from all other distractions was the ideal environment to relax and be creative. I was so inspired by Di that I am considering taking up sculpture as a hobby. "

Art on the Edge responded:

" Hi Chris. Thank you so much for your kind review! Definitely take up sculpture you are a natural! I look forward to seeing your work in a gallery one day! Di x"

Rain reviewed: Giacometti style bronzed animal sculpture one day workshop Suffolk one-to-one

"This course was great day out and I’d highly recommend it for anyone wanting to learn a new art skill. The teaching was pitched just right so I left with a piece that was all my own creation. The pace was just right, and cups of tea and chatter available all day. This day was definitely worth the time and money. "

Art on the Edge responded:

" Oh Rain thank you so much! I really enjoyed your company. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Di x"

"We had the best day with Di in her fantastic home studio. She was so lovely we felt like we were spending the day with a friend and had a really great time doing something different as a family. We were so impressed with what we all managed to achieve and we all had a finished sculpture to take home at the end of the day! I'd give a sixth star if I could for the sparkling company of Bojo the dog throughout :) (we were asked if we minded him joining us!) "

Art on the Edge responded:

" Oh Nicolas that's so kind. I really enjoyed my day with you all. Hope the sculptures got home safe and sound. D x"

She was a fabulous teacher and so accommodating, very kindly rescheduling after illness struck our original booking a few months ago. We had SUCH fun and are all thrilled with the results! Company from Bojo the dog throughout was also a very happy additional extra. Thoroughly recommend this course!"

Graham reviewed: Giacometti style bronzed animal sculpture one day workshop Suffolk one-to-one

"I became inspired to learn a little about sculpture after seeing The Helmet, by Henry Moore, in the National Gallery in Edinburgh, which is simply stunning. After I returned home to Essex I found Di’s one day workshop on the internet and booked myself on. The day was simply fantastic and I came away with a bronzed cat, which I am very pleased with. Di’s instruction is excellent, the facilities are great, and I can honestly say the day surpassed my expectations. I can thoroughly recommend the workshop. If you have an interest in sculpture and want to make something that is not too difficult this is a great place to start. I am about to collect together materials to have a go at making another piece myself at home."

Art on the Edge responded:

" Thank you Graham it was a delight to meet you. Fabulous cat and I really enjoyed teaching you. Send me some pics of your next creation. Di"

"I have highly recommend this clay day with Di. It was my first time with clay and it was really relaxing and fun. I learnt so much and made some great things including 2 very funny grotesque plant pot holders. I am looking forward to seeing the glazed and fired. I have done other workshops with Di so I know she is a very good teacher. She works to your pace so you never feel rushed or stressed. You can take away as much or as little as you want from this day. K."

Susan reviewed: Giacometti style bronzed animal sculpture one day workshop Suffolk one-to-one

"I dragged my husband along to this course, " I am not artistic, it will be a waste of money".Guess what, he loved it. He came home with a fantastic running hare, and a beam from ear to ear. I came home with a lovely meercat. Thank you Di, a great day out. Susan PS At long last we can get to family in Australia, where we hope to impress others with our sculpturing."

Steve reviewed: Bronzed Giacometti style figurative sculpture one day workshop one-to-one

"I was given a "Giacometti-style" sculpture making course as a present and I have to say that it was fantastic! Di was great fun to chat with whilst she taught me how to make the sculpture. Di was very open to ideas on what I could make and helped me think through what was feasible in a day! I am really pleased with the final piece that I created and and really liked Di's approach - as she guided me on how to do each step but didn't do the steps for me. She used a different sculpture to demonstrate the technique in a series of easy-to-follow steps and it worked really well. Di also did a great job of keeping my progress on track so that I had a finished product at the end of the session - and did this is a very relaxed way, helped along with coffee and biscuits!"

Art on the Edge responded:

" Thanks Steve. I really enjoyed meeting you and helping to create your Minotaur!!! Hope he's in pride of place."

"I had the BEST time on my sculpture course. Not feeling I was particularly creative, Di patiently proved that I actually was and I came away with a lovely piece of work in the shape of our sausage dog for my husband's Christmas present (who was as amazed as I was!). Lovely setting, lovely relaxing day and best of all, lovely Di .. highly recommended and I'm planning on a second visit with my daughter soon. Thank you!"

Art on the Edge responded:

Bianca reviewed: Giacometti style bronzed animal sculpture one day workshop Suffolk one-to-one

"I consider myself a beginner when it comes to art and Di was so helpful and patient when taking me through this course. The space is beautiful and really relaxing, it made focusing and getting lost in the creative process really effortless. Di is friendly, incredibly creative and so knowledgeable - it was such a cathartic and fun process to create a hare sculpture with her. I'd really recommend booking a class with her - either as a 121 like I did, or as a group - because she can really hold space, is warm, fun, friendly and makes the whole process totally enjoyable. Thanks Di! :)"

Art on the Edge responded:

" Thank you so much !!!"
