Contemporary Sculptor Beatrice Hoffman
Groups vary in size between 5-8 students, and her approach to teaching is individual
Beatrice Hoffman has widely exhibited in the UK, Holland and Germany, and this is a chance to see the work for yourself in the place of its creation.
She lives in the delightful village of Garford, south west of Oxford, and teas, coffees and cakes will on offer for the intrepid travellers!
She models in clay, with the sculptures cast in bronze (resin), varying in size between 20 and 100 cm height. They are equally suitable for the home and the garden; and her subject matter varies between figurative (stylised and abstracted female figures and heads) and abstract forms.
For very large sculptures (on commission only), she uses polystyrene (carved and constructed, covered in plaster, cast in a variety of materials): More here
Beatrice Hoffman also teaches ceramic sculpture to adults, teenagers and children in her studio, on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Sundays and holidays times. The groups vary in size between 5 and 8 students, and her approach to teaching is individual, with plenty of teaching materials and inspiration (laminated images, toy animals, books, sculptures by students and herself) supporting the students.
She has over twenty years of experience in teaching studio workshops, as well as in schools, days centres, galleries and colleges. You can see more about her workshops here.
Showing at the same address will be Julian Parfitt, with his landscape and macrophotography.
