About the Course
City Works Carving is based in the complex of a converted Victorian shirt factory. It has an urban chic vibe in amongst trees and a small brook.
The session facilitator is Debs Harrison who studied Fine Art and has a diploma in stone masonry. She is a professional sculptor who specialises in stone.
People attending the course range in age (from 16 to 72yrs), experience and ability. Debs gives a brief introduction to point you in the right direction to make sure you are comfortable at your banker and have a stone you like the shape of. She then gives individual input as your piece develops letting you make choices between different options in techniques, tools and finishes as you progress.
