About the Course
This workshop will teach you a range of stone carving skills to enable you to create a contemporary planter for your home.
On this two day course you will gain a wide range of techniques involved in the hand carving of stone. On day one you will learn a range of stone carving techniques using a range of chisels and a mallet. Begin by carving a block of Bath stone into a cylinder, then learn how to shape curves, and how to hollow out. We will also plan and design the decoration of your planter.
On day two you will transfer your designs on to the bowl and use various decorative techniques to pattern the stone. You will also learn how to finish the top to a contrasting smooth surface. Then plant your planter ready to take home. No previous experience required.
