Debra Sloan Roof Finial Sculpture Masterclass: 5 Day Course

12- 16th March 2018

Hand building (sculpture) is an open and exploratory experience, and Debra conducts the class to make the process accessible. Handwork is very a different experience from throwing pots, it is about imaginative structure. Beginners and experienced makers alike are welcomed.  Though technical skills are helpful, beginners can make expressive and cogent work.
