About the Course

In this workshop you will either hand-carve a simple ball flower appropriate for beginners, or basic letter-cutting. You will be instructed by our second year apprentices. Our apprentices, who are training on a seven-year apprenticeship, are instructed by an international Guild Master, whose forebears include William de Ramesey, the Royal Master who oversaw the construction of the South walk of Norwich Cathedral cloister, as well as Michel de Villedo, Master at Versailles (see our 'Carve with a Master' workshop). As well as learning carving techniques handed down from Master to apprentice, since 1080, you will also have the opportunity to learn about our rich and multi-layered culture and traditions. Furthermore, you will be working within an authentic stonemason's lodge in the delightful setting of the medieval church of St. Clement's on Colegate in North Norwich.

Available on weekdays only.
