Answer: Topiary is such fun! This past summer the Chicago Botanic Gardens had a great whimsical topiary display throughout their Gardens and it was fun to see all the shapes that can be formed. Of course topiary can also be smaller: the tabletop ivy or herb type. I located two sites on the web that may be able to offer you more information and guidance.
The Samia Rose Topiary is in Encinitas, CA. Information about their classes can be found on the web, by phone, or email. (800) 488-6742 http://www.srtopiary.com/classes.html E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
A complete link to larger shrub topiary is found at http://www.geocities.com/RainForest/Vines/8433/links.html
This site also offers an email address and may help you locate the kind of classes you are wanting. Good luck!
