Emma runs various sculpture courses: predominantly being life sculpture but also material specific courses or anatomy focus workshops.  The classes are run in a well-equipped ceramics room at In Bristol Studio, where her studio is.
Emma is passionate about getting people involved in sculpture: passing on her enthusiasm for the tactile nature of clay as well as exploring new sculptural techniques and studying the intricacies of human body.  Emma has spent many hours drawing and studying human anatomy and during the courses is always at hand to discuss the anatomy of the pose.
All courses have maximum of 7 participants, ensuring you have plenty of space. Facilities include a specially made turntable for the model, so that everyone can stay in one place, as the model turns so you can see every angle.  Email Emma to book a course, ask any questions or if you wish to be added to her mailing list to hear first about new courses.
