Чем вы займетесь
After you have arrived at the studio we will go over a few safety points and then discuss the essentials of the craft with examples of previous work. We will talk about the tools and their use and try a couple of practice cuts showing how to avoid chopping off the wrong piece. Working on slabs of Portland limestone we will then transfer our design onto the stone - either Celtic, natural form or something you have brought using carbon paper. At this point coffee/tea and home made flapjack are introduced. We will then cut away the background stone leaving a raised area with the design. The design is then modeled and refined using line and texture to 'catch shadows' . This will turn our flat design into a 3D sculpture for you to take home and place in the garden or a favored spot indoors.
Unlimited tea and/or coffee

Где вы побываете
The carving will take place in my purpose-built studio in Fletchersbridge, just outside Bodmin. This is in the grounds of the Chapel, home of Stable Arts. The studio is wooden, with plenty of space and light with an outside working area if the weather is kind.

The experience will last for around five hours so it is advisable to bring along a packed lunch, or there is a fine cafe in the Chapel itself serving light lunches/cakes
