Attending an animal sculpture workshop is a great way to hone your skills, learn new techniques and gain confidence in your ability. Nick’s UK animal sculpture workshops are studio based and usually run over several days to allow plenty of time for instruction and practical work. The workshops include demonstrations, technical instruction and a mix of group and one-to-one tuition.
My elephant is sitting pride of place on a window sill and my wild dog looks very calm and relaxed by my table. I can’t believe I made them and neither can my friends!
