Time 10.00 – 16.00

Lunch break: 12.30 – 1.30

Course fee £165*

Biscuit firing of the work made £30


Spend the full day working in clay with a life model, being inspired by the work of Rodin, Frink, Matisse, and other great sculptors. You’ll be given the time to observe the anatomy and movement. Initially the class will make a few clay sketches in preparation to dedicate the time to model a more considered piece. There is the option of preparing all work for later firing by Messums Creative.

*the course fee includes tuition, life model, and bag of clay per participant

Lunch is not included but why not book a table at The Mess Restaurant in the Tisbury gallery, which is only three miles away.

Charlotte Moreton is a Wiltshire based artist who trained at the Frink School of Figurative Sculpture (1999-2001). Her practice derives from nature and her background in nature conservation work and her sculpture is greatly influenced by trees and nature.  Described by Jonathan Dimbleby as “A very talented sculptor”, Charlotte is also experienced and insightful and sensitive tutor.

Bring: apron, pencil, notebook. Please wear closed-toe shoes.

Materials explained: Clay will be provided as part of the course. There is no extra charge if you wish to take home your unfired pieces (up to four). If you would like us to fire your work for you to have as a forever keepsake or to use in order to learn later about how to glaze, please add into your basket the biscuit firing option. At Messums Creative we embrace sustainable creative learning practice and our system is designed to enable our students to make the best.
