Stone Carving Class and Tuition: Weekend Course
Set in the beautiful Chalke Valley, Henry’s studio at Knowle Farm will be the location for the stone carving workshops.

The course is aimed at all abilities, from complete beginners with little or no previous experience to professionals, who would like to explore this fascinating and ancient craft in a small intimate group with close expert tuition.

Students will be instructed in the basics of recognising and understanding which stones are suitable for carving, the different types commonly available and their qualities.

Careful focus will be given on developing good tool skills, the correct way to hold and handle tools & selecting the right tool for the right job.

We like to encourage students to bring along their own ideas, but can make suggestions for something to carve. The primary purpose of the weekend though is to have fun!
