Thursday Weekly classes

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.
