"Insults should be written in sand, compliments should be carved in stone" (Arab proverb). Stone carving might be described as the removal of stone to discover the beauty of form hidden within. Wherever we may travel we will find beautiful stone carving in temples, cathedrals, countryside parks and busy cities. Forms may be of human, animal, fish or fowl or may be abstract in form to allow the imagination free rein. If you want to understand how to choose the right material be it sandstone, chalk, limestone or marble and recognise a range of tools, mallet, adze, bouchard, feather and wedge then why not try a stone carving course?
