The weekend workshop takes place at Mount Pleasant Gardens Kelsall Cheshire CW6 0TB.
The course is designed for beginners. We work in a relaxed atmosphere set in ten acres of landscaped gardens.
Each person will have their own set of tools and PPE
On both days the workshop will start at 10am and finish around 4pm. The workshop is held under cover but we are outside so suitable clothing and strong footwear is recommended. The only other thing you will need to bring is a packed lunch and flask. All materials and tools are included in the price. At the end of the two days the sculptures are yours to take home.
We will be using a soft Maltese limestone which although relatively easy to carve is firm and gives good results. The blocks are approximately ten inch cubes. It is not necessary to have any definite ideas as these can develop and change throughout the weekend but some initial source material in the form of a sketch, photograph or small model might be helpful.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
We work in a relaxed atmosphere with no set goals. I work with each person individually to help them create their sculpture.
The soft Maltese Limestone that we use is perfect for the beginner but allows people of all abilities to quickly develop their technique and produce their work of art.
