  • What You'll Learn

  • Meet Your Teacher

  • Is it any good?

  • Starting with a blank clay head, Elaine will show you how to add features, building on them until you’ve created a lifelike bust. Bring a photo of someone special to use as a frame of reference and you’ll be amazed at the likeness you’ll be able to achieve. If you’re a beginner, book onto the workshop to get you started, then finish your bust over a series of weeks by booking into Elaine’s drop in sessions.
  • Elaine has been sculpting for ten years and has just taken over the Linda Joyce Studio (renamed as the Elaine Joyce studio) in Southbourne. She specialises in portrait sculpture, enjoying the ability it gives her to immortalise friends or family in art. By running drop in sessions at her studio, Elaine has helped hundreds of novice sculptors to create uncanny busts, tackling every problem with a characteristic calmness and determination.
