One Day Hare
Sculpture Workshop                 £99

9.15am (kettle on at 9.00am!) - 4.30pm

** stop press - two very special workshops have been planned for Christmas Day and New Year's Day !  The day will run 9.15 - 4.30 with festive lunch buffet and closing with a glass of Champagne (soft drinks available).  You will make a Medium sized 50cm hare (twice the size of normal) and can make him or her even more special by painting the inside of their ears with gold lacquer.  The days will be unusual, fun and very different to your average Christmas or New Year!  Spaces are limited to 6 per workshop, Minimum age is 16.  Ticket price is £150 inclusive of everything plus £25 will be donated to the wonderful Macmillan nurse charity.  Press here to Book Online or here to make contact if you have any questions. **

 

Sculpt your very own moon gazing or ‘in motion’ hare!
 

No experience needed as Jo will demonstrate and guide you through every step.  All materials, tools and apron are provided.  You will have a turntable to allow effortless moving of your hare as you build it up.

Jo will make contact with you prior to the workshop asking what 'pose' you would like to make - eg, moongazing, looking back, leaping (nb: there is a £5 surcharge payable on the day for making the long leaping hare to cover the extra materials).  

 
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 can move features of the wire armature to your own personalised ‘pose’, making every sculpture completely unique.  At this stage you can place a message or memento (such as a locket of hair) into the heart area - particularly poignant for the moon gazing hares.  See the Q&A page for more information.  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!).  Your finished hare is water resistant so can moongaze or leap about your garden.  You leave with a little pot of touch-up paint and some sticky back baize in case you wish to display your sculpture indoors.

All the kits available in our shop will be available at discount for you to take away either to enjoy yourself or as a lovely gift.

 

There will be plenty of tea, coffee, water and snacks available throughout the day.  Please bring your own packed lunch - fridge space, microwave & toaster are available.

Our workshops are friendly, fun and relaxing.  They are suitable for all abilities and age groups, although suggest children over the age of 14 (children under 18 must be accompanied by a paying adult).  Workshop numbers are limited to ensure plenty of workspace and a relaxed atmosphere.  Family/group days can be arranged - please contact me.

Please note cancellation notice is a minimum of 1 calendar month.

 

Gift Vouchers for the full price of a One Day (£99) or a Two Day (£250) are the perfect present and come complete with a beautiful gift card  Please contact me to arrange.

Fabulous sculptors and sculptures!

"I treated myself and my husband Jeff to this one-day course for our 19th anniversary (which is bronze, well only painted bronze, but looks so good).  Jo really is a brilliant, clear and friendly tutor who guided a completely non creative Jeff into a great hare artist! 

 

We had a fantastic day, the dogs are so friendly and the studio is modern and bright.  I recommend this day to everyone and I will send a few friends and family on it for unique Christmas and birthday gifts.  Can't wait to return for a 2 day course."
