Breathing life into sculpture
Meraki Art School’s inspirational wildlife sculpture series for beginner and intermediate level creators is a great way to develop your skills in clay modelling. All of our classes are full day weekend workshops and spaces are limited to a small number so that everyone may benefit from the tutor’s expert guidance and support. Learn to create well proportioned and realistic animal sculptures using tried and tested methods that you can apply again and again!
All of our workshops include a full days tuition and all of the materials and tools you will need to create your sculpture. Also included is 2 x firings in the kiln and a small amount of glaze required to complete the project – this will be applied by the tutor to your instruction.
Classes take place in our Meraki Studio, 1st Floor of the Guildhall Shopping Centre, Exeter, Devon. There will be plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits for you and we will take an hour break for lunch. You can bring a packed lunch but there’s shops and cafe’s all around so you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Meet the Tutor
Join us in one of our sculpture classes, with tutor Chloe Farrant a ceramist with 15 years experience in sculpting with clay.
Chloe is a ceramic wildlife artist, specialising in hand sculpting techniques with stoneware clay and porcelain.
Her work is held in many private collections and is prized for its personality and detail.
All of our upcoming workshops must be booked in advance and are also available to purchase as gift experiences or bespoke workshops. We ask that everyone arrives from 9:30 to enjoy a nice tea or coffee as we begin sculpting promptly at 10am – we will aim to finish by 4:00pm
Students work disclaimer
In the process of firing there are risks
Due to the nature of hand building and sculpting clay, unfortunately a very small percentage of work that I fire in the kiln may crack, or break. This is caused by either trapped air in the clay, poor build quality or dampness in the clay.
I will however, endeavour to do my best as a tutor to minimise the risk of this occurring, I cannot guarantee however, the safe return of all of the sculptures created in the workshops.
