Weekly stone carving classes

Our weekly class is held at Chillington Hall on Thursday mornings.  All photos in slide gallery are of student's work, none had previous experience before joining the class.

Carvers follow a series of suggested topics which introduce new skills and techniques. Projects focus on skills such as visualising 3D form; relief creation; figurative realism; direct carving and working from a maquette. Own projects can be followed if preferred. 

 

Everyone works at their own pace with individual tuition. This is a very sociable group who work outside whenever possible.

 

Sessions run 10am - 1pm. All stone and use of basic tools are included.  Click on image for more information.
