Maker's bio

Welcome 😃 I'm Jo Garden. I call myself a 'facilitator' as my joy is enabling people of any skill to achieve something they did not expect, plus have time away from the everyday stresses of normal life. My sculpture & slate mosaic workshops are broken down into small stages which result in amazing sculptures and works of art regardless of your artistic ability (honestly). If you purchase a kit, there is a full length video of me making the sculpture which you can watch as many times as you wish. If attending a workshop, my peaceful studio is tucked into the garden surrounded by trees and wildlife making it a very tranquil and stress busting. I run several workshops a month but am often booked up for months in advance. If you book a long way in the future, I do make contact if I have cancellations and can move you forward. Please do not hesitate to message me if you have any questions. Jo x

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

"Never in a million years did I think I could achieve a sculpture of a large owl that I could be proud of, but at the end of a fabulous two day course I have! With Jo’s help and guidance I have created a beautiful owl. I am thrilled with it. Working in a beautiful studio in a stunning garden deep in rural Norfolk was idyllic. Jo is a wonderful tutor and a great host. Her husband Andy works equally hard on making the course a success, providing the armatures and teas! Highly recommended."

Jo Garden Art responded:

"Thank you Nicki 😘 Your owl really was lovely - in particular the texture which really looked fabulous once painted in bronze and patinated blues and greens. Well done! Jo xx"

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

"Fantastic course from start to finish Jo is such a great teacher and makes you feel so welcome. I arrived feeling I had no art abilities at all to leaving two with a dog sculpture which I adore and feel I have ‘tweaked’ to make it unique and almost part of me Thank you so much Jo (and not to forget Andy) I will be back (you have been warned!)"

Jo Garden Art responded:

"Thank you Tina 😘 Your dog was wonderful and you incorporated some personal aspects to really make him special. It would be fabulous to see you back in the studio. Jo xx"

Shelley Williamson reviewed: Slate mosaic workshop at Jo Garden Art

"Oh my goodness! What an amazing, inspiring day! Jo offered a wonderful workshop, incredibly well structured and organised, amazing creative space and the end results were way beyond my expectations and I’m thrilled with them! Jo is an inspiration! Jo left no stone unturned in terms of support, hospitality, enthusiasm. My partner enjoyed the day equally and Jo even had close-work glasses to hand as we'd forgotten ours!! Thanks Jo and Andy for everything. "

Jo Garden Art responded:

"What a wonderful review - thank you so much Shelley (and Philip!). Each of your four pieces were so different. Lots of creativity within each one and I've been delighted to hear you are continuing with this new process at home. Please do not hesitate to make contact if you have any questions. Jo xxx"
