In this workshop you will learn how to hand build heads, or whole figures. You are encouraged to bring along photographs of animals or of the person you would like to sculpt.

Places are limited to five attendees to ensure Covid security and to guarantee plenty of individual attention. The course is suitable for experienced ceramic artists and enthusiastic beginners. The cost is £110 per person for the two days to include all materials. If you have your own tools you are advised to bring them. Book in advance on Eventbrite or contact us.
