Our workshops

have been formed with the aim of providing a level of tuition in the arts which respects the fundamental skills of looking, seeing and making.  The courses we offer have, at their roots, skills which are traditional yet always contemporary.  Most are suitable for complete beginners.

Introduction to Stone Carving (4 days)

This course provides an introduction to the nature of stone and the means by which we can work with it.

Using the traditional techniques of the sculptor and stonemason, methods of transferring ideas onto a block and finding form within it will be discovered, and the aim is to complete a sculpture and return home with a finished piece.
