Hare sculpture one day workshop in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

I so enjoyed my day. Jo is obviously very experienced and knows how to put you at your ease. The studio is well-equipped and comfortable. All materials there waiting by our places. Taken step by step through a really interesting course, lots of fun and extremely satisfying. Much encouragement, laughing, and copious refreshments. I am well pleased with my hare. Gorgeous location too. I'll be doing it again in 2020. Excellent value!
Thank you Jo :)

Thank you Adrienne! Really happy you enjoyed the day - and experienced the 'magic' moment of the gilt cream final touch which bought your lovely hare to life ;-)

Hare sculpture one day workshop in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

What a fabulous day! Jo is a very warm and welcoming lady and her studio is lovely. I had such a great day and brought home a leaping hare that I am very proud of! I would highly recommend this workshop, very well organised with all materials supplied and copious amounts of tea, coffee, biscuits and hula hoops 😊

Really enjoyed this workshop. Jo is a great teacher and the facilities are fantastic. I have no artistic experience at all but the step by step instruction and easy to use materials made it a pleasure and I ended up with something I am very proud of. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

What a fun day! My Sister and I wanted to spend the day being creative with our 81 yr old Mum who hasn’t made any artwork in over 30 years. Jo gives great instruction, positivity and keeps things moving to create your sculpture. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and have been inspired to try the process at home.

Thank you Nikki! It was a pleasure meeting you and your family and so glad your Mum enjoyed herself ;-) Can't believe your hare is now in Tuscany!

Hare sculpture one day workshop in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

Jo is an enthusiastic & competent teacher very patient with absolute beginners like me! The location was lovely and everyone was friendly and supportive. I never thought I could create something artistic but Hepworth the Hare will take pride of place at home. My friends are planning to book on a course next spring and I will be back ! Thanks for a great day Jo ! X

Thank you Carol! So glad 'Hepworth' managed the long journey home and now has views of canal boats going past your window ;-) Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Jo x

Hare sculpture one day workshop in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

Had a lovely day yesterday on the one day Hare Workshop. Jo is a very patient teacher and full of encouragement for a total beginner! Jo leads you through each step with clear instruction and demonstration and provides lots of help when needed. A thoroughly enjoyable day, meeting new people and returning home with a sculpture I thought would have been well beyond my capabilities. I would love to do it again.

Hare sculpture one day workshop in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

What a brilliant day! Jo is an excellent tutor very patient and guides you through the project so well that everyone comes away with a really impressive hare even without any prior experience or skill. The environment is lovely and Jo and Andy are both so friendly and welcoming (Tula and Mia are gorgeous too). The information you get prior to the workshop is clear and informative and the day itself is very well organised. I would thoroughly recommend this workshop.

Thank you Lynn! It was a pleasure having you and Jeff here on Saturday ;-) And didn't Jeff do well! I love it when someone say's they are not creative - then go on to pull a hidden talent out of the hat!

Hare sculpture one day workshop in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

An absolutely wonderful day in a beautiful environment and led by Jo who is such a clever tutor. Jo made sure we all had the help we needed and 6 amazing sculptures were created by 6 people who had not a clue what we were doing at the start. A wonderful day with a special output.

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you so much for your review Sally! Everyone has an art genie just waiting to be tickled ;-) I'm sure your Mum will be thrilled with your stunning leaping hare. I'm looking forward to working with you on your full sized standing hare for your own garden.

Hare sculpture one day workshop in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

Thoroughly enjoyable day. Jo was friendly and welcoming and provided easy to follow instructions and modelling. Everything was provided so all we brought was ourselves and some lunch.

I had great fun and lots of laughs with friends as we made our hares. Definitely will do this again as came away with a hare to give mum for Christmas and now want to make one to keep for myself.

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you Maggie! Really happy you made a wonderful hare for your Mum despite your injured shoulder ;-) Looking forward to seeing you again.

Hare sculpture one day workshop in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

What a brilliant day! I have never attempted anything like this before and believed I didn’t have a flair for this type of art. Jo was a great instructor and with her step by step guide she explained and showed us the individual processes to achieve a good-looking hare! The modern studio we worked in was lovely, bright and airy with beautiful views overlooking the garden and fields.

A great day out whereby you can use your creative talents or in my case, learn a new skill.

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thanks Yvonne! So glad you enjoyed the day and loved your very own masterpiece ;-) Very pleased you like my new studio - I'm as proud as punch with it and so lucky to have such a beautiful space to be creative in.

Thank you for your great review Sarah! It’s a privilege to be involved with someone discovering a hidden talent ;-)

Hare sculpture one day workshop in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

The hare sculpture day was part of my mini-hen weekend. I wanted the weekend to leave us with a reminder (apart from Prosecco overload!), and wow what a result! We now all have our own funky hares as we decided to go a bit crazy with the designs – mine is called Beyonce as she has a rather generous posterior! I can’t wait to show her off! We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and it was so relaxing and fun. A great day out – I would definitely recommend it and Jo is a lovely teacher!

Response from Jo Garden Art:

What a pleasure it was being part of your hen party weekend ;-). I loved the ‘funky hares’ and I’m sure they will ‘toasted’ to frequently. Have a wonderful wedding and I wish you every happiness for the future.

Hare sculpture one day workshop in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

What a fantastic day! Not only did I come out of the workshop with a personalised sculpture which I would be happy to display in my home, I also learned how to design and develop a piece of artwork which was immensely satisfying. A great way to chill and socialise, and I now feel confident to try other artistic things. Would thoroughly recommend!

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you for your comments Pauline, your running hare was fabulous!

I have just completed the Hare Workshop Day and it was amazing! I had so much fun creating my own masterpiece. It was a fun, relaxing atmosphere and who knew, with Jo’s guidance, I would be taking home my own Hare to display. I shall be booking again.

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you Rachael! So glad you had a great day and thank you also for sending me a photo of your hare in ‘pride of place’ on your sideboard ;-)
