What you'll do

Design and make your own model for a larger piece

We’ll meet in my home studio and start by exploring the secrets of a variety of media, materials, techniques, and finishing effects. You’ll feel the allure of clay for yourself by creating something special, and when the juices are flowing, you’ll design a maquette (model) for a much larger piece - just imagine what you would like to put on the plinth outside the National Gallery of London.

Tesni was such a wonderful teacher. We both remarked that she struck an incredible balance between helping us develop our work and providing useful tips and also allowing us to explore the clay. She was an above and beyond host and her tea and cakes and the whole house was a treat! Such a lovely afternoon to take your mind off work and explore working with your hands.

This is the best experience I could ever have and Tesni is the world class artist! And her husband Frank is world class scientist! It was such a great learning experience! If anyone wants to understand Art in London, you have to try this!!!

Such a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon - couldn't recommend this more! Tesni immediately makes you feel welcome in her lovely home and you get a fantastic insight into the world of an artist, seeing her studio and loads of examples of her work. What's great is that compared to a lot of galleries, she encourages you to pick up her work and explore the different materials and forms she uses. My girlfriend and I came with a rough idea of what we wanted to do, but she helped guide us through as complete beginners in the area. After half an hour you drop into an almost meditative state as you get used to the clay and we both left feeling very relaxed, and happy with what we produced!

We had a wonderful, relaxed and creative afternoon. 3 ladies who had no particular creative background or talent. We were made to feel welcome with tea and cake. Tesni took time and care and were not made at all to feel as if we were beginners. I would highly recommend this experience. It is therapeutic, creative and just simply lovely. Excellent value for money.

Learning about sculpture from an artist as knowledgeable and passionate as Tesni was a fantastic experience. Tesni was eager to share her wisdom and was very open to questions. The things I had the chance to do with Tesni were fun, engaging, rich and interesting but I won’t go into details because this is Tesni’s curriculum to share with you. Tesni is an accomplished artist who was very accommodating to my special time request. She encouraged me and gently helped me see ways to improve my sculpture. If you are curious in any way about sculpture, this is an experience not to miss.

This was one of the highlights of my entire trip to London. It was just me and Tesni all afternoon. She was the sweetest host and really helped me feel comfortable sculpting. We started by viewing her pieces and then going through a PowerPoint where I learned a lot and was amazed by her work. Then we got into sculpting. We also had tea, cheesecake and hot crossed buns. It was a lovely experience and I would do it again on my next visit!
