Do you love to run your fingers over a cool stone sculpture - to appreciate the shape and texture with touch as well as sight? Do you linger over the cold carved contours of Moore, Epstein or Frink, or long to wander around the Yorkshire sculpture park? You can find a course here to develop your own potential to create beauty in stone and other materials. Maybe you want to learn how an expert sharpens carving gouges or chooses just the right stone from which the imagined shape can be born. Perhaps you'd prefer to learn from an experienced letter-cutter. Most courses shown here are based in areas of stunning scenery - so why not have a go at stone-carving and be inspired by excellent teaching in a wonderful environment. Whether you are a total beginner or already accomplished you will find a course to suit your ability and enhance your skills.
