What you will study

This 3 day Masterclass will be led by visiting wildlife sculptor Simon Griffiths. Simon’s work is inspired by nature and British wildlife (animals and birds) in the woods and fields near his home in County Durham. He has spent many years experimenting with different techniques and materials and strives in his sculptures to portray the birds and animals as honestly as he can by capturing the sense of awareness that is present in all living things.


On this course he will share his techniques and bring a whole new dimension to your previous ceramics studies allowing you to branch out and explore new ideas and creations.
