It was a wonderful afternoon. The models and the tableaux were exciting to draw and the music added to the magical atmosphere and helped to sustain concentration.

I attended with my 15 year old daughter who wished that she could spend more days there. The Phoenix Studio is a beautiful, relaxed and friendly setting for a superb course. Highly recommended for the talented and patient tutors and for escape therapy!


Clay life modelling weekend with Karin Ort (Course inactive)

In-person course
- - #15225

This was my third trip to the Phoenix Studios, having done a couple of the animal clay courses. I was quite apprehensive about my ability to create a life model but Karin remained calm and positive throughout, guiding us all to produce some amazing pieces. The atmosphere was most supportive , with Karin looking after both students and model with care and consideration. I would highly recommend the weekend to anyone , you will be delighted by what you achieve!

Etching with Liam Biswell (Course inactive)

In-person course
- - #14888

Had a brilliant time on the course, Liam is a great teacher and explained everything really well. We all had a go at drypoint and photopolymer etching. The Phoenix studio is well equipped and a really lovely relaxed environment. It was great fun and I came away with 20 or so decent prints which I really enjoyed producing. Shame it was only 2 days really as I didn't want to go home....I think everyone else really enjoyed it too. Can't wait to come back again!

Great course....the 2 days allowed enough time with Liam to master (!?) the different processes, one to one help when needed but left plenty of studio time to experiment and produce a folder of work that I was proud to take home (mostly!!) Would highly recommend, Liam's passion and knowledge about the subject is infectious and to be able to sit and soak up the ambience of the Phoenix Studios' idyllic surroundings is the cherry on top! x

Wire & mixed media sculpture courses with James Ort (Course inactive)

In-person course
- - #14191

I absolutely loved this course. Having never worked with wire before I was over-the-moon with the sculpture I created. I did A level art in 1978, before James was even born!! & since then have been too busy working as a Nurse to be an artist. This course has certainly given me food for thought & I will definitely book on another course. James is a fabulous tutor with a warm personality. The studio is the perfect environment, peaceful, light & comfortable. Thank you.

What a wonderful couple of days we've had at Pheonix studios! Just finished the 2-day weekend wire sculpture course. James is great - relaxed, encouraging, really keen to understand what you're trying to build and then guide you through it. The studio is lovely - bright, spacious, with all the kit you might need. And the atmosphere was great - friendly & fun. Would thoroughly recommend!

I am a beginner and thoroughly enjoyed this course. I learned a lot and was well supported throughout the 2 days. Karin is lovely and the atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. James' cake was excellent too!
I would definitely do the course again. Thank you.

Great weekend with a lovely mix of people. Fab tuition and well resourced with all kinds of bits and pieces. Just as good for beginners as for artists...always something new to learn. Great fun, great creativity, great cake!! Will be returning again and again and would recommend.

As a complete beginner, I had no idea whether I could do clay-modelling. I collected my piece of clay and thought, "what now?". But Karin patiently came to each of us, encouraging everyone and helping us really look from every angle. The course was in lovely surroundings and it was great chatting over teas and lunch. I was very pleased with what I achieved by the end of Sunday and look forward to collecting my (now fired) piece in the New Year. I will be back to do more!

Screenprinting weekend with Liam Biswell (Course inactive)

In-person course

Superb weekend. First time I've been able to throw myself into a print project from start to finish since I was at secondary school. So many ideas now flowing, I want to get back into the studio again and create more. Would have loved to spend more time getting to know everyone, but we were all so engrossed in our creations that the weekend whizzed by. I'd do it again in a heartbeat......just need to find the time now. Highly recommended creative weekend!
