Award-winning mixed media artist Priscilla Jones to teach 3D sculpture at the Do What You Love Retreat

I am delighted to announce the third of our teachers for the Do What You Love art and creative enterprise retreat, to be held in Yorkshire, England in May. 

Award-winning mixed media artist Priscilla Jones will teach 'Structure and Surface: Creating 3D sculptures using wax, wire, fabric, paper and found materials'.

This is a rare opportunity to take a three day 3D sculpture workshop with Priscilla. Her work is exquisite, and has been exhibited and exported all over the world.

Dive in to a world of experimentation as you learn how to construct a gorgeous sculpture using wax, wire, fabric, paper and found materials.

The first day will be spent drawing and experimenting with mark making to create stunning images that can be applied to your sculpture. The next day, using lightweight wire you will create a structure in a style and scale of your own choice, learning how to form and shape contours that can easily be manipulated with your fingers. There is no need for soldering or fusing in this process so you can relax and enjoy creating at you own pace.

On the last day, you will be able to refine and re-manipulate elements of your sculpture before exploring its surfaces. You will experiment with the images you created on day one and apply them to your fabulous shapes. You can also add found materials and experiment with waxing fabrics and paper to complete your final piece.

This will be a hands-on experimental workshop. No experience is necessary. Come prepared to have fun, and take home something very special!

During the retreat, Priscilla will also share her experience of working as a professional artist, and discuss how she has grown her creative business - including establishing and running a successful art gallery and selling her work internationally.


More information will be available on the Do What You Love retreat website to be launched in early January. This retreat will be cosy and intimate – small enough for everyone to get to know everyone - so places are strictly limited. Registration will formally launch with the new site in early January, but if you want to be the first to know about it (and get in on the early bird discount), sign up for the new Do What You Love newsletter up on the right hand side of this post.
