If you want to learn to make ceramic sculptures or improve your existing skills, this course is perfect. The tutor gives a lot of help and advice, including demonstration of various techniques. She also encourages everyone to pursue their own individual style. The range of animals and methods used across the class was very wide, and some great results were achieved.
