Upcoming Workshops:

Mentoring with special guest teacher Jim Croke

Saturday 23rd November

This is an invaluable opportunity for senior students and emerging artists to receive mentoring from sculptor and TBSSS guest teacher Jim Croke. This is an intimate class – only six participants (per session) will have the opportunity to attend and it will take form as a group critique.

Participants will each have 20mins allocated to show and discuss their work with Jim. Jim will be able to offer guidance, advice and support on how you can push your sculpture to the next level. As this will be done in a group environment, participants will benefit and learn from hearing Jim speak with each participant.
