Reviews from previous class participants:
"How lucky was I to respond to an ad in the almanac! Ross Miller was a treat. An artist who is also a teacher is a precious gift to find in a workshop. His patient and generous methods gave us all the opportunity to work through the complicated process feeling supported all the way. If it were to be run again I think at least one extra session should be included for completing the cast on site. I am keen to use this process in my own practice". -Chris
"The course was a great experience, Ross was a terrific teacher with plenty of patience, the workshops were well planned and catered for ,the vibe was good and some of the sculptors produced a tidy piece of work! Thanks for the opportunity." - Peter
