We believe that all artistic expression is joyful, therapeutic and enriching. That it should be encouraged in all ages, and be a vital part of all our lives.
We teach sculpture in several mediums. Also pot throwing & slab building. We have all the facilities to throw pots, glaze and fire ceramics.
We offer classes and tutoring, but you can also come and use our workshop space and facilities to do your own thing if you don’t need our help. We are a creative hub!
We had a great day. I booked the course as a surprise for my daughter who is very stressed with her job. The day whizzed by, she never thought about work once and at the end said her pumpkin was the best thing she'd ever made - a big compliment as she has done quite a few handicrafts.
Bob and Joe were both lovely and we chatted away easily all day long.
My daughter made a Halloween pumpkin with lots of advice about how to do the 'scary' features and I made a pumpkin for an Autumn display.
Highly recommended, thank you.
Everything about this workshop was fantastic.The venue is perfect,the studio well set up and the tutors know their stuff,nothing was too much trouble, no question went unanswered.Very talented and multi-skilled artisans that are happy and able to share their knowledge.
Lovely venue surrounded by nature.
Hosts could not have been more helpful. Tea and biscuits provided all day!
Joe and Bob were very adept at sculpture and took us through the day skilfully. Help and advice was given throughout the day as needed, but we very much got to create our own sculpture. The Pal Tiya is an amazing material, extremely malleable and easy to apply. Looking forward very much to the next course! Hares please!
A very informative and fun workshop. As a complete beginner when it comes to sculpting Joe and Bob were very helpful and friendly. I felt like I left the venue having made 2 new friends. I would definitely consider doing some more workshops with these 2.
Can not recommend enough!
