If you are new to sculpture, or to my teaching, you are very welcome to join for either two taster sessions before making up your mind to join for a full term. Most people joining my classes are complete beginners, and sofar , always loose their trepidations of starting something new within one or two hours or starting to sculpt.
I recommend a minimum of , rather than one, as this allows for the two stages of sculpting clay: wet clay modelling in the first session, dry clay carving and refining in the second session ( with some time for the sculpture to dry in between). As they are two very different skills, only the two sessions give the full experience of sculpting with clay , and result in a more satisfying, finished first sculpture.
The easiest option is for newcomers to join already running classes, that have a vacancy on various days
Sometimes my classes are filled, however
1. I can always offer two trial sessions within a term, as my regular students don not attend every session
2.some vacancies turn up after the end of term
3. Or you might chose to create your own bespoke sculpture workshop with your friends or family
for sculpture sessions can be offered to friends and relatives. once booked with BACS, I can send a hand written sculpture postcard confirming the gift voucher, to be given as a present. For suitable dates, the person receiving the gift can contact me by email or phone, and I will research my google calendar
Or create a with your friends or family, fir a birthday or other celebration, and I will run the workshop on a date that suits us both.
The cost is £200 excluding the clay and firing, for the duration of 3 hours of teaching.
