You will learn the techniques that have taken years to develop and have been used in many areas including films, exhibitions, events and retail establishments.

What you need to know!

You do not need any previous experience. We will take you step by step through every process.
We have successfully trained people from all walks of life - sculptors, model makers, art students, small business owners, etc.

A Carving to take away with you

By the end of the weekend you will have made a complete foam sculpture and will have skinned and finished it. You can take this with you when you leave and use it to refer to the methods you have learnt.
You will get a printed and bound set of course notes with pictures, supplier details, mix ratios plus a CD Rom with pictures of every stage for added reference when you get home.
