What others are saying about our courses

"It has been an absolute joy watching Amelia Rowcroft’s figure sculpting course since purchasing this a few days ago. It has entirely cleared up a number of misunderstandings that I had regarding the plumb bob and clock face technique of sculpting. Her in-depth anatomical teaching combined with the incredible artistry by which she approaches her sculpture is really wonderful as Amelia takes you through a precise step by step set of tutorials that are easily understood  and utterly delightful to watch."

“Any sculptor you talk to will tell you that likenesses are the most difficult subject to work on; with Ms. Rowcroft's course, this complex and often frustrating task is made easy-to-understand and fascinating in its insight. I learned an enormous amount immediately and it has served me well when sitting down to recreate the face of a famous person. I can't recommend this series enough.”

“I love this course because is really feels like one-on-one instruction. Every time I had a question, the next video had the answer. I’ve learned so many new techniques for really really seeing what I’m looking at, which has helped both my sculpture and my drawing. I also love how Amelia goes in-depth on finishing techniques. When I go to start my next piece, I feel confident I will know what to do from start to finish.”

“This is a very easy to follow course, no matter the level you are at it will surely help you see something you are not seeing, that little detail that keeps you away from improving. I can see improvements on one of the pieces I’ve been working.”

Mario, Chile

“I’ve touched clay once in my whole life 🙂 However I do recommend this course and I do recommend to learn the concept of sculpting and drawing traditionally. Cos if you know it traditional, you know it digital.”

“Strong Foundations” made me see my surroundings much better than before and look for what maters. The methodology this course is based on, and the way that Amelia  presents it, is the best way to sculpt a likeness of a human being.”

Behzad, Iran

“The best way to learn at your time from an experienced sculptress. This course is so complete! Besides taking you step by step from structure, modelling and final finishing it gives extra tips ! For making professional sculptor tools, pretty cool. While orienting for taking pictures, measurements, every lesson comes with Amelia's notes and check list to do it again and again by your own.”
