Stone Carving


I will be holding weekend courses in stone carving during 2014, on request.

On this course you will be given as an introduction to the types of stone available for carving, design and sculpt a piece of limestone using direct carving methods. You will be instructed in the use of traditional hand tools, rasps, wet-and-dry sanding papers and polishing methods to produce your sculpture.

This course is suitable for beginners and those with some experience. It will be limited to just six participants.

Tutor : KEVIN BLOCKLEY is an Associate of the Royal Society of British Sculptors, and a professional archaeologist specialising in cathedrals and churches. He has been sculpting stone since 1994. 

Teaching is from 10 am Saturday - 4 pm Tuesday

Cost of course: 120 for two days tuition includes lunches and materials. It is possible to stay on the farm or camp - see Accommodation for details.
