About the Event
Sculpt your very own moon gazing or ‘in motion’ 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). You will move features of the 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. A quick coat of matt lacquer will provide weather resistance if you wish to have your hare moon gazing or running about your garden!
The day runs from 9.30am – 4.30pm. There will be plenty of tea, coffee, water and biscuits available throughout the day. Lunch is an hour, please bring your own packed lunch or pop to the award-winning Hillcrest Deli & Café 5 minutes’ drive away.
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 weekend retreat. Two-day workshops are also available for larger pieces (boxing hares, Giacometti inspired sculpture etc) and for those who have been on a one-day workshop and would like to do their own thing!
Our workshops are friendly, fun and relaxing. They are suitable for all abilities and age groups. Student numbers are minimum of 3 and maximum of 6 to allow a spacious and calm environment. Separate dates can be arranged for memorable hen days and positive team building events (please make contact for details).
