JAYNE - February 28th
A GREAT introduction to sculpture which isn't just one evening. The longer course allowed me to get to grips with sculpting techniques and pace myself. You do learn more from trial and error and you get more practice. You don't feel rushed until the last day. Finished or not it's still a great sense of accomplishment. I chose not to pay for the bust to be fired and glazed because I felt it wasn't something I wanted to keep - what am I going to do with with a huge Roman bust? It's solid clay so it was also very heavy. It was great to have the option. Livia is an absolutely wonderful tutor. Very patient, very experienced, kind and encouraging. She has a wealth of knowledge and if you are struggling to correct something she will tell you how to better approach fixing it, or if you are frustrated then she will do it with you. She's always watching and giving you tips and pointers.

Coming from a glass art background, I have the privilege to be taught sculpture to a extremely high level, this includes the attention and support from a fantastic and well experienced tutor, Livia Turco. I enjoy the class and I have been encouraged to push the boundaries and look at my work in a totally different way. The venue is relaxing and very private, I am inspired and look forward to every lesson with Livia. The space maybe small, however the relationship with the students working in the space is wonderful and supportive. Livia continue the love and support you give to all of your students. Thank you so much
