Fantastic course today with Bob and Joe. Great instruction with lots of tips (and tea!) as we went along. Really pleased with what I managed to create by the end of the class.

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!

Had a great day and good tuition. Pal Tiya Premium is an interesting medium and something I definitely want to have another go with. Love the idea you can build big and add!

What a fantastic way to spend a day in a lovely location. Great tuition from Bob and Joe, and their enthusiasm spurred us on to achieve our goal. I recommend you give it a go. I can't wait for the next one.

I have had another lovely day with a great group of people and learning sculpting with Joe and Bob. Second time at The Shire Workshops making things for my garden. Always enjoyable working with your hands. In our modern world we need more opportunities to be creative. I think Joe and Bob are running one of the best places to enjoy artistic experiences. Thanks to CraftCourses for promoting places like this.

Excellent day, I was a complete beginner, absolutely no experience in sculpting or crafts of any description! Left with great memories and a Pal Tiya tree planter! Highly recommended.

Such a lovely day with Joe and Bob.
I had never made anything like this before but I need not have worried. The atmosphere was relaxed and the guidance was excellent! I would highly recommend The Shires Workshops!

Bob and Joe are brilliant teachers and have designed a course that teaches you how to use this great medium, and come out of it with a pretty much completed piece. I would highly recommend this course, and in fact any of their courses

This is the 2nd course I've attended at the workshop. Brilliant day. I'm not very experienced in sculpture, but thoroughly enjoy it and find the course very confidence building. Always meet interesting people and get to work in a peaceful setting. Definitely recommend these workshops.

Fantastic class, locations and teachers. Joe and Bob are so patient and share a wealth of knowledge. I never thought I could sculpt but with their assistance I left with a piece that I am proud of. I can’t recommend enough and I will be back again

Amazing day. Bob and Joe were excellent teachers and so supportive. Nothing was ever too much trouble. I had high expectations and they surpassed them. I can’t wait to go again.

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!

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.

A great introduction to the innovative Pal Tiya sculpture medium. We spent a day making our own (light up) castles using this clay-like substance. Its idiosyncracies took a little getting used to, but through Joe's excellent demonstrations and Bob's infinitely patient explanations, we set to. The class size is small, allowing individual attention, plenty of elbow room and a lot of camaraderie during the makes. All our castles were different and showed off our individuality. Tea and tin foil were on tap, with the added bonus of cake too! I highly recommend the workshop, and took advantage of the generous introductory discount on the product too.

I have attended two workshops so far at Stafford Studios. Bob and Joe are very welcoming and full of knowledge and are fab tutors. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there learning to sculpt with Pal Tiya Premium. It's fantastic stuff and lovely rural location, so peaceful and also a very well equipt ceramic studio. Looking forward to going back again :)

A fantastic day spent learning a new skill. The teachers made it fun from the start . Finished the day with a very cute fairy door and a decorative toadstool that now has its home in the garden. Would recommend this course to everyone, no artistic ability necessary, just enthusiasm. Thank you Bob and Joe.

Just spent an amazing day with Bob and Joe Stafford using Pal Tiya to make a fairy door and toadstool house. Very relaxed, friendly atmosphere, excellent tuition and an unusual new medium to work with. Very inspiring!! I would recommend these workshops to anyone with an artistic bent. Thoroughly enjoyable and a chance to learn a new comparatively straightforward skill with an exciting new medium. Many thanks Bob and Joe.
