This is now an online class which will be held with a combination of a fb private group, lives and potentially Zoom shorter sessions for difficult parts
Sculpted Cottage scene which can be personalised with a modelled figure and miniature flowers.
Do you dream of a little cottage on a hill? Maybe there is a cave below the hill with a little hide away and a person inside? Or perhaps you dream of visiting Hagrid and his hut? The figure is optional. This course is the chance to design and bring your design to reality. If you have made a cake and a figure, then you are perfect for this course.
