About the Course
Join us for an introduction to the fascinating art of stone carving. This course is flexible and restricted to no more than 6 students so people can explore the subject matter of their choice and develop their ideas to complete a piece by the end of the day.
After an introduction to the use of tools and studio practise we will look at creating depth and the graphic possibilities of line and texture to bring the form out of the stone.
Your tutor Peter Graham has well over 20 years experience in teaching and has completed many private and public carving commissions including work with the National trust and English Heritage. He will lead you with unfailing patience and enthusiasm through the process of carving

Brilliant! My mum and I had such a lovely day at the stone carving workshop. The excellent tutor Peter is so skilled and has a wonderful way of teaching, he explained everything in such a calm and interesting way.
