Courses

Gray's Stone Carving Studio offers weekend and term time courses for people with all levels of carving skills. Complete beginners will be guided through the whole process, taught good working practice, tool handling and the basic stone carving techniques. The emphasis for those with some experience will be on improving their technique.

Students can work on their own designs or be directed to a starting point for a variety of projects ranging from sculpture in the round, relief carving or architectural carving, creating their unique carving and taking it home with them at the end of the course.

The primary purpose of the course though is to have fun! There are few 'rules' when carving stone, a sense of creativity is highly encouraged, and the tuition will be aimed at giving students the skills needed to express that creative impulse.

Coffee, tea and snacks will be provided, students are encouraged to bring their own packed lunch or pub lunches are available a short drive from the studio.

All materials, tools, safety glasses and dust masks will be provided. Health and safety are of paramount importance. Students are strongly advised to wear steel toe-cap safety boots (or stout footwear) and old clothes.

A full range of beginners' carving tools will also be available to buy.

See News page for latest course dates and syllabus details.
