UK Animal Sculpture Workshop Programme 2021


PRICE £695

Due to restrictions on international travel and the risk of further disruption due to Covid, we are accepting bookings for 2021 from UK residents only.

We’re pleased to announce the following 3-day animal sculpture workshops based near Nick’s studio in the Bratton Clovelly School Room in West Devon, overlooking the Dartmoor National Park. They include the opportunity to visit Nick’s studio, which is just a few minutes’ walk away, to view her work and arrange firing and finishing of your own animal sculptures. Nick will talk about her animal sculpture and influences, demonstrate building and modelling techniques and provide a mix of group and individual tuition, as you work on your own animal sculpture.

We will refund 25% of your fee if you notify us in writing of your cancellation less than 4 weeks before the start of the workshop.
