Sculpture tutor Veronica Ricks presents an exciting selection of the work of her students who meet together every Friday to explore the different possibilities presented by the carving process.

They work with stone including limestone and alabaster, and a variety of different types of wood such as oak and limewood. These materials each have their own compelling and magical character.

The slow process of carving allows students to develop their ideas thoughtfully over time and to respond imaginatively to the natural character of their chosen materials, knowing that the results may well last for hundreds of years!
