A very popular three day stone carving course starting on Monday the 25th of February for clients of all abilities wishing to create grotesques and gargoyles in stone - although if you'd like to explore a different theme then please do feel free to bring along your own ideas.
Using a hands-on approach this carving course takes you from the basics of three-dimensional form through to the creation of expression and personality using shadow, depth and undercut. An ability to draw certainly isn't necessary, and you'll be shown how to apply your ideas directly to the stone without the need for preliminary model making.
The stone used for the carving courses is a local Lincolnshire limestone, an easy to work, durable stone that retains very good detail.
Please note that tools and stone are provided for use during all courses and that you take away with you your finished piece at the end of the three days.
Everyone who has attended the courses has achieved excellent results and taken away with them fantastic pieces of work – testimony to the professional level of instruction given throughout every course.
Refreshment breaks during the course are taken on an ad hoc basis with tea & coffee in plentiful supply.
Please note this course runs from 10am to 3pm daily.
The cost of the course doesn't include accommodation. However, there are a large number of Bed & Breakfast establishments in and around Lincoln. A list of contact details can be found on the Links page.
