About the Course

One Day Stone Carving and Lettering Course with Simon Burns-Cox at The Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. The course is designed for those who have either participated on The Two Day Introductory Stone Letter Carving Course and want to continue or for those who have some basic experience. Complete beginners, however, are also accepted as the class is small. Maximum 5 participants and open to all levels.

At the start of the course, there will be a review about the tools and how to use them. The student will be reminded about the importance of the V cut and different ways of cutting stone. There will then be a discussion about what the 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 during the day.
