Create your own sculpture out of stone in this 2-day workshop. 

During the two-day course, you will learn how to sketch an idea and mark out a carving, and how to use the appropriate tools to create your own carving.

You will then be given a block of stone, such as Bath Stone (a soft and manageable stone) to work on at your own speed. By Sunday afternoon, you will have finished a small stone carving to take home with you to decorate your house or garden!

Suitable for beginners. 

Course Tutor: Patrick Barker -  member of the Royal Society of Sculptors.
