Sculpture at Studio 27A

'SCULPTURE UNLOCKED' is a new programme of online courses live via zoom from STUDIO 27A. The series launched in February 2021 with 'The Portrait in Clay from Photographs'. Click on the images below to find out more about recent and upcoming courses.

Once Covid 19 measures are relaxed and it’s safe for small groups to resume working from life, face-to-face figurative sculpture courses to suit all levels of experience will resume in Brook's spacious new premises in Westgate-On-Sea.

Both term time and holiday options will be available, covering a variety of techniques — as well as an exploration of the cultural and aesthetic power of the human likeness. The programme is designed for adults (18+). Slightly larger groups can be comfortably accommodated in the new space – but everyone will still benefit from individually tailored one-to-one tuition.

The new studio is light and spacious - and just 2 minutes from the station. And the glorious, sandy Westgate Bay is a pleasant ten minute walk away.
