About the Course

Five Week Stone Carving, Letter Carving and Relief Course with Simon Burns-Cox at The Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop on a Monday morning. Maximum five participants and open to all levels. Course price is £170 with the use of stone and tools included.

At the start of the course, there will be a review about the tools and how to use them. The student will also discover the importance of the V cut and the different ways of cutting stone. There will be a discussion about what students would like to carve. Realistically, one word is achievable in two days if you have some experience. Students who have already attended a course may want to continue with their project.

Before the carving process begins, there will also be a discussion about style, proportion, spacing and form and the importance of drawing before carving. We will look at how to transfer your sketches on paper to the stone. Students will then begin to draw their design in preparation for carving. Students will work on their project with personalised tuition and guidance from Simon throughout the day.
