get ahead!

Really looking forward to teaching this course - you can register through the website here.


This is a relatively short course with four 2-hour evening classes to make your sculpture, after which your piece will dry, and then be fired for you. During the final 2-hour class, you will decide whether to use paint or glaze to decorate your finished sculpture.

This course is for anyone who would like to sculpt with potter’s clay. We will provide materials and instruction to get everyone successfully working with clay. For those with some clay experience, I will help you develop your composition and build character into your piece.

The course is focused on the horse, but your “look” can be as literal or abstract as you wish, and you will make your piece as simple or challenging as you want in the time available.

I will cover all the important techniques for hand-sculpting forms in clay in the fun and stimulating environment of the artist’s studio upstairs at the Okotoks Art Gallery. You might be surprised at just how much beautiful art is being made up there! ;)





Background: why a horse-head?
Our subject matter - making a horse head study - was chosen because lots of grown-ups asked if they could have a class of their own after a very successful children’s horse-sculpting course at Okotoks Art Gallery.
