One day stone letter carving and relief course with Simon Burns-Cox

One Day Stone Letter Carving Course with Simon Burns-Cox

About the Course

One day stone letter carving and relief course with Simon Burns-Cox at The Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. Maximum 5 participants and open to all levels.
Course price is £85 for one day but there is an option to do this course over two days for £165 (see my other course listing).

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 and create a relief.

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.

Please get in touch for details and bookings.
