"I am emailing you to thank you for the safe arrival of my casting kit. It arrived promptly this morning as promised. I would also like to say that I think the way it is wrapped and presented is beautiful, I think It shows a lot of care and effort has gone into it. It felt quite special to receive it, like getting a present from a friend! Thanks again."

On-going Support - Tam will personally provide support via email/phone for 1 month and then on-going support provided you are buying frames etc. from us regularly.

Payment - The cost is £499 payable at the time of booking to secure your place. A maximum of 2 people will attend each course. 

Baby Model - You are welcome to bring your own or a friend's baby as the model. The baby needs to be under 1 year, preferably under 6 months and will be needed for 90 minutes at the beginning of the training day. Someone else would need to come with the baby. Then they would need to take them off after the 90 minutes. It would be good to bring the baby you intend to practice on afterwards. And, of course, the adult you bring would also get some free training which might be useful to you. If we do not have model we use our real life baby doll instead to practice on. 

Once you have completed your course we offer a huge range of frames and materials etc. on a wholesale basis with no minimum order quantity and low delivery charges. Our frames are specifically designed for baby casts, clay impressions and 2D raised impressions. You can order any mixture of different frame quantities, styles, sizes, colours and mounts or just one frame on its own.
