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.

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.

I didnt really know what to expect from this class as I know little about decorative stone carving. Now I think i know enough to go home and try to make another carving. We left with two almost completed carvings. Mine is a swallowtail butterfly and Eric made a Celtic knot. Peter gave us good instructions, lots of tips about how to hold the hammer and chisel and how to make nice crisp cuts. It is actually very hard. I felt more confident after 5 hours but far short of being competent. We highly recommend this workshop to other travellers or anyne looking to try their hand at something new. Thanks Peter!
