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

Bronze Clay Duo 'Hare' & 'Sleeping Cat' Sculpting Kit
"What a wonderful day, I couldn't believe, as a total beginner, that I could end up making something I was so pleased with. The step by step instructions were very clear and manageable, and Jo was very helpful with advice and encouragement..... and.....the tea just kept on coming!! as Jo and Andy were such lovely hosts too."
"My husband and I were gifted a voucher for a 1-day workshop with Jo.
We did not know what to expect as neither one of us has ever done any sculpting work before.
It was amazing! Jo and her husband Andy are the most welcoming hosts and we were treated to endless supplies of coffee and tea and snacks and chocolate.
We enjoyed ourselves immensely! Jo's wonderfully easygoing nature made us feel as if we had always done sculpting. Clear instructions, always on hand to offer advice without interfering, and offering plenty of helpful hints and tips.
Our hares are pieces of art to behold and we are thrilled with our work.
The next visit will be a 2-day workshop, we cannot wait to get back to Jo's studio.
Totally recommend the experience, book now ... you will love every minute of the workshop.
We loved the experience!
Thank you, Jo and Andy, and the canine and feline support team.
