Tuition: Stone Carving Workshops

"Creativity is contagious, pass it on" - Albert Einstein :>)

Three-day Stone Carving Workshops in York

I run enjoyable workshops teaching professional sculpting techniques in stone.

Courses are held throughout the year.
My dates are flexible - get in touch to arrange a course to suit your needs.

 

Class sizes are small (maximum 3 students) so you will recieve plenty of individual attention.

 After three days tuition you will have picked up enough skills to continue carving on your own.

 

You will learn:

  • Tool skills, and carving techniques
  • How to work in three-dimensions
  • How to sharpen your chisels
  • What tools you will need, and where to buy them
  • Where to locate stone
  • How to build a work bench (banker)
  • How you can develop your skills further

There is no set project - I'll help you sculpt whatever idea you have in mind.

All tools and materials provided, plus copious amounts of delicious food throught the three days.

"Lucy is not only a brilliant carver and sculptor, but she has that rare ability to impart her expertise to others with skill, humour and encouragement. I thoroughly recommend her courses".

 

" The most enjoyable thing I have done in years!  With an office-based job with long hours, it was fantastic to be able to do something creative.... It is surprising what's possible to achieve with no previous experience.  I can't wait to do a follow-up".

"I attended Lucy's course as an absolute beginner, and her friendliness and supportive approach ensured that I came away with both the skills to start working on my own, and a sculpture of my own that I'm really pleased with".

 

I have run stone carving workshops since 2007, and am insured and qualified as both a carver and a tutor.
