Description

THE COURSE
This one-day workshop is for those wanting to learn and find pleasure in discovering stone carving. You will start with an introduction to tools and types of stone, followed by direct carving to get the feeling of tools and material. You will also learn about preparation of designs and templates and how to rough-out for specific shapes. Techniques on finishing will also be covered and how tool marks can be used to enrich the quality of your final piece.

“Carving is easy, you just go down to the skin and stop”. Michelangelo.

John has taught workshops both in France and England, and, most notably, the Common Ground Project based in Dorset, sponsored by the Henry Moore and Calouste Gulbenkian Foundations, and for the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in its Pont du Gard project, a Roman stone bridge aqueduct.
