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

In-person course

What a wonderful experience in a relaxed and very friendly atmosphere. As someone with little artistic creativity, I am very pleased indeed with my moon-gazing hare and very grateful for Jo’s gentle guidance. A fabulous day with lovely people, I highly recommend it. Thank you Jo.

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you Helen! Everyone has a wisp of creativity and it was great working with you on your moon gazing hare with a lazy leg! Fabulous ;-)

I really enjoyed this course, Jo is generous with her home, her time and her knowledge. She was welcoming and friendly and set a lovely encouraging atmosphere for the day. I learnt a lot and am really pleased with my finished hare and look forward to tackling the home kit I brought away. I highly recommend this course to anyone.

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you Sam ;-) Just remember your hare is watching you! Good luck with your dog sculpture, Jo x

Probably the most worthwhile course ever - am so happy with my hare and the kits to take home are taking shape. A very welcoming home and people - I am coming back one day!

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you Gayle ;-) I showed a photo of your full sized hare to a friend the other day and she loved him, said how serene and humble he looked. Glad your kit hare and cat are coming along - please send me a photo!

Thank you for your lovely review Robert ;-) It was a pleasure working with you and your homage to the world record marathon runner Eliud Kipchoge was truly fabulous. I can't wait to see a picture of him in his final position in your garden!

Thank you so much Francesca - and so pleased you and your beautiful hare had an uneventful journey back home in your gorgeous campervan ;-) I look forward to seeing you again and perhaps we can have a play with cold wax painting!

Had great fun on both of Jo’s courses and produced some very pleasing sculptures. Lovely location and good company (inc the dogs!)

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you Peggy! Your tall Giacometti handstand man as re-inspired me to make another version myself for the front garden - much to Andy's horror it's likely to be over 6 feet tall and then put onto a high stand ;-) ;-) ;-)

My husband, brother in law, sister in law and myself spent a wonderful day making hares. My husband had booked the day as a birthday present for us all. Our hosts were faultless. Never ending cups of tea and coffee and biscuits. We took a picnic with us and were invited to eat in their kitchen, where they gladly heated what needed heating. The course itself was perfect. Great tuition in a lovely setting. Will definitely return. Thank you 😊

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you Tracy! It was a real pleasure having your family birthday event at the studio. The banter was hugely entertaining ;-) and you all created wonderful hare mementos of the day. Would love to have you back. Jo x

Simply great day. Jo is a fantastic teacher. Nothing was too much trouble. The sense of achievement was very satisfying and I came away feeling thoroughly chuffed with my running hare that looks authentic and convincing. The studio is beautiful and well equipped. All in all a great inspiring experience.

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you Angie! You chose the most fiddly pose to sculpt - the running hare - and created a wonderful result. Well done ;-)

I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Jo in December. It was extremely well organised and we all came away with an excellent hare sculpture in differing poses. All the instructions were easy to follow and understand for all levels. It made me want to do more crafty activities, five stars from me! Thank you Jo!

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you Claire - I hope your lovely moon-gazing hare travelled safely with you back to the Shetland Isles and has been gazing up at the Northern Lights during these dark nights ;-)

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 :)

Response from Jo Garden Art:

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 ;-)

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 😊

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Oh no! my hula hoop addiction is out ;-) !!! So glad you enjoyed the day Rachel xx

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.

Response from Jo Garden Art:

Thank you Dawn ;-) Your leaping hare was lovely; so glad you enjoyed the workshop!

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.

Response from Jo Garden Art:

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!

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

Response from Jo Garden Art:

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
