Carvers have the opportunity to explore both the eternally beautiful qualities of stone or the fascination which wood can offer for its variety of coloration and grain. Instruction will be given in the use of appropriate tools and finishing methods (tools for beginners will be supplied by the school). You will be guided to produce sculpture which is creative and personal by working intuitively with your chosen material and be shown also how to take the steps necessary to achieve a more controlled result if desired, for instance by working with the figure.
Beginners and more experienced carvers work alongside each other on this course.
