Venue, Timing and Cost
The Wednesday Morning sculpture classes run weekly for ten sessions in the autumn term 2020, and take place at "Sculpture Workshops Oxford" , in the garden of the home of sculptor Beatrice Hoffman. they last for three hours, with a coffee break in the middle.
The teaching approach is informal and friendly, with an equal emphasis on technical, artistic and creative skills :
For that reason, students can pick any topic that they feel drawn to - animals, human figure or head, or abstract form.
Much inspiration and teaching materials are on offer: educational plaster casts ( facial features, head and torso) , toy animals, natural objects and sculptures are on display, as well as hundreds of laminated images and many books.
