About the Course
Create your own sculpture out of stone in this 2-day workshop.
During the two-day course, you will learn how to sketch an idea and mark out a carving, and how to use the appropriate tools to create your own carving.
You will then be given a block of limestone, such as Bath Stone (a soft and manageable stone) to work on at your own speed. By Sunday afternoon, you will have finished a small stone carving to take home with you to decorate your house or garden!
Course Tutor: Patrick Barker - member of the Royal Society of Sculptors.
Location: Stable Yard Room at The Bishop's Palace
