Course overview

Tanya Bechara specializes in realistic native animal sculptures and she will share with you her simple handbuilding and decorative techniques to help you achieve great results.

Will my vessels be fired?

Bisque firing of your two finished sculptures is included in the course fee.

Works must be made of earthenware clay (not stoneware) in order to be fired in our kiln loads.

From 1 June, some classes will return to studio based learning. Other classes will continue to be delivered online in our Virtual Zoom Art Room. The venue is listed with the class details.
