Students learn the practical aspects of clay sculpture from the foundation up. Guided by Georgette, students learn how to construct a solid clay base, develop the piece into a rough form, then to sculpt the clay into an image or composition of the student’s choosing. The skills learned in the early stages form the basis upon which anyone is able to use their own creativity to create an original work of art which surpasses any form of pottery or ceramics. All materials are supplied for the tuition.

Georgette is an accredited TAFE teacher who has tought sculpture for over 20 years for all levels from beginners wanting to try something new to advanced practitioners wanting to learn a new skill or develop their practice.

Tranquillity and Harmony

In today’s society, everything seems to be controlled by deadlines and pressure to perform, both at home and in the workplace. When under stress we self – medicate with food, alcohol, coffee and cigarettes.  Living on adrenalin we then become irritable, inefficient, complaining and have trouble with sleep.  A growing number of people, from housewives to professional workers are finding the need to relax and find an outlet for their emotions to be a necessity. More and more people are finding such an escape from the every day pressures.

Every Thursday, for three hours, they find their way to a beautiful relaxing, Feng Shui Garden In Birkdale, where they relax in good company and learn the art of sculpting. People from all around Australia, the US and England have taken the sculpting courses, where they are tutored by Brisbane Sculptor Georgette Schwantes.

Some of the students have found that the beautiful surrounding and good company are so therapeutic, they keep returning for several years. The very act of creating something that they can treasure from a block of clay, gives them a wonderful sense of achievement. The garden surroundings and the company of like minded people has proven to be a creative panacea to the world in which they live.

Every year, students have the possibility to display their work at the annual Exhibition event where local judges present awards. See the amazing sculptures that have won prizes at past years’ exhibitions.


Classes are held at Georgette’s Studio in Birkdale in the Redland City Shire.
