Professional sculptors offer sculpture lessons in their studio located in Bowness. We have experience working in small and large-scale projects in diverse materials.

Methodology

Our lessons are based on a project of interest that the student wants to develop from beginning to end. The lessons are given in a relaxed atmosphere where we are all working at the same time and sharing ideas. Problem-solving and flexibility are fundamental in completing a successful project.

Background

We have a diverse studio practice with vast experience in private and public art commissions. We work in many different materials and techniques and have exhibited our work internationally. We have taught sculpture in Mexico and Canada to people of all ages and abilities.
