James reviewed: Bronze casting weekend

"Thank you to Mark and Caroline for such an enjoyable weekend! I can wholeheartedly recommend this workshop for anyone who is new to bronze casting or those with more experience. Mark is an excellent teacher with huge amounts of experience, he is very generous with his knowledge and time in explaining the processes involved. The workshop vibe was very relaxed with tea/coffee and snacks available all day. The weekend was most definitely value for money and would happily encourage others to book onto this workshop."

"A very enjoyable course. Mark and Caroline made everyone very welcome. I learnt a lot while having fun with a great bunch of creative people. It was a hugely rewarding experience to be part of the pouring and go through the whole process in a relaxed and friendly environment. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in learning about bronze casting or anyone who would enjoy a creatively rewarding weekend."

Josh Ford reviewed: Bronze casting weekend

"Mark and Caroline ran a great weekend. Booking the course was easy, and any questions and advice (accommodation etc.) were quickly handled. Mark was very attentive, expertly explaining all of the process, and providing us tailored support to ensure we made our sculptures successfully. Lunch and refreshments were delicious (thanks Caroline!) A great setting for the course in their picturesque workshop. Overall a enjoyable, relaxing and creative course, which is thoroughly recommended!"

Dan Sweeney reviewed: Bronze casting weekend

"I don't usually leave reviews as I'm a Luddite but I have just had one of the best weekends I've had for years. I have not spent a weekend with the sole purpose of trying to create something that was not measured in numbers, or money made for clients, but in how it made me feel. The course is the perfect introduction into bronze casting and is structured so that by the end of the weekend you just about finish a large cast that you are pretty happy with. Mark is a great teacher and in the 2 days showed me the basics in a relaxed manner that inspired confidence with the ideas the group had come up with, and he always had a way to make something work. Whilst an introductory course, Mark also managed to pass on inspiring information about the art form in general and the historical context throughout the day and during the great lunches prepared by Caroline. Caroline passed on some words of wisdom that helped my bear casts and made everyone feel amazingly welcome and full the whole weekend. Jo, Nick and Tony were great company and helped to make the course a brilliant weekend, even if Nick stole all the bronze with his chair."
