The Tom Bass Sculpture Studio School is unique. Founded by Tom Bass in 1974, it is Australia’s oldest and most respected institution dedicated to teaching sculpture in the classic atelier tradition.

Working in a large fully-equipped studio, students of all levels learn one-on-one from professional and dedicated sculptors in a friendly, creatively stimulating
atmosphere.

Whether you’re sculpting in clay, stone, direct plaster, papier mache, wax or
wire, you will be challenged and empowered to learn to ‘see’ and be inspired to develop your own creative expression. At TBSSS you’ll find yourself absorbed
in another world apart from the everyday.
