The Art School has an unbroken tradition of teaching sculpture, stone and woodcarving since it was founded in 1879. We play a crucial role in keeping alive the skills essential for preserving the world’s most important monuments and buildings, and offer the UK’s only BA (Hons) and MA courses in the subject.

Our comprehensive and advanced carving courses will prepare you for a fulfilling career in architectural heritage as a professional carver or as a professional sculptor. Whether your ambition is to create new work in historic contexts or to restore sculpture and ornament, the aesthetic and historical knowledge you’ll gain on your course will be as important as your manual carving skills.

You’ll benefit from our extensive industry links and heritage networks, with exceptional live projects and commissions supporting your professional practice. You will be offered unparalleled opportunities to develop your skills and knowledge as well as your professional practice experience and professional networks.

All our Carving Tutors are inspiring, established professionals and our generous tutor to student ratio means a tutor will always be on hand to offer guidance and support, and one-to-one supervision.

All courses culminate in a final show which is an important platform to showcase your practice and often leads to commissions and future exhibitions. The brilliant work of our 2020 Historic Carving graduates is currently exhibiting in our online Graduate Showcase – enter here to view their work!
