I currently teach various workshops for sculptures which range in size from 12" to 4' including the Flamingo and Heron. These are very popular to display in your gardens. The workshops can be for beginners or can be more advanced incorporating various techniques to create amazing art.  In addition to statues, I also teach a workshop to make beautiful flowered wall hangings using T-Shirt material. I have so many ideas and future plans so keep checking back for more information.

Group Functions     Full Day      Cost: Depending on Sculpture  Size                                         

Why not bring a group together, just your friends or family for a private session and learn the basics of creating your sculpture. My first workshop was with 6 ladies that we all knew and we had a blast. That's how I got so involved in this medium. Some people might be intimidated around others so this would be ideal.  Why not book this as a special occasion, like a bridle party or someone's special birthday. No matter the occasion this is a great day to do something different together.
