The Workshops are set up for those wanting to take the time, to situate, learn and find pleasure in discovering and perfecting ways of expression through Stone Carving. Preparation
We start with an introduction to tools and chosen type of stone. This is followed by direct carving on a small piece of Portland Stone, to get the feeling of tools and material. The preparation of designs, templates for the chosen subject and an explication of roughing-out techniques for specific shapes.
Starting Your Stone Advice on where to start, and how to apply the templates. Tips on technique and guidance to help solve any difficulties encountered.
Perfecting and Finishing. Introducing techniques to finish your work. How tool marks can be used to enrich the quality of your final piece.
These Workshops are aimed towards leaving you with a memorable and enriching experience, helping you to look afresh at your surroundings and your own capabilities. Creating inertia that will carry you on further to new limits….. getting that stone rolling.
“Carving is easy, you just go down to the skin and stop”. Michelangelo.
