About the Event
Sculpt your very own moon gazing, leaping or running hare! No experience needed as Jo will demonstrate and guide you through every step.
We start with a steel stand and aluminium wire armature that has been pre-made for you (although later in the day we will make an armature together so you can understand the technique). Under guidance of Jo, you will move features of your hare armature to your own personalised ‘pose’, making every sculpture completely unique. Layers of plaster are then added, with a final coat of paint and ‘kiss’ of gilding cream to bring your sculpture to life (the magic moment!).
Depending on the pose you have chosen, your sculpture will stand between 25 - 40 centimetres high and weigh about 1 kilo. The products used are weather resistant if you wish to have your hare moon gazing or running about your garden!
The day runs from 9.15am – 4.30pm, with parking on-site. There will be plenty of tea, coffee, water and chocolate available throughout the day. Lunch is about 45 minutes - please bring your own packed lunch (microwave, oven, toaster, plates & cutlery available).
Jo’s rural workshop is spacious and bright, set in beautiful quiet countryside just outside the village of Hepworth on the Suffolk / Norfolk border. It's within easy reach of Norwich, Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge for those of you having a holiday break. Two-day workshops are also available for larger pieces (large hares, cats, dogs, Giacometti inspired sculpture etc) and for those who have been on a one-day workshop and would like to do their own thing!. Take a look at the Two Day Sculpture workshop page for amazing sculptures created at previous workshops!
Our workshops are friendly, fun and relaxing. They are suitable for all abilities and ages over 14. Student numbers are kept to a maximum of 6 to allow a spacious and calm environment. Separate dates can be arranged for groups of friends & family, memorable hen days and positive team building events (please make contact for details).
Please note cancellation or postponement notice is a minimum of 1 calendar month
