STONE CARVING WORKSHOPS 2017
Andrew Worthington, professional sculptor, will be holding two weekend courses at Stonyford Cottage Gardens in April and August 2017.
All materials, tools and tuition are included in the price. The course is designed with beginners in mind, using soft Maltese limestone, which makes it possible to create a sculpture in two days, which ‘students’ then take home. Previous students have commented how good this workshop is and are so impressed with what they were able to create.
Sat & Sun 22nd & 23rd April – Bookings being taken now
Sat & Sun 19th & 20th August – Bookings being taken now
Ideal Gift idea or group event.
The soft Maltese Limestone you will use is perfect for the beginner but allows people of all abilities to quickly develop their technique and produce their work of art.
The stone that is used is (approximately an 11 inch cube). It is advisable to bring a sketch, photograph or small model ( This is only as a starting point though as your ideas will be restricted to the individuals capabilities)
As you can see from the images of past workshops the styles vary greatly and this certainly makes the weekends all the more interesting. Different effects are created by using different tools.
Morning refreshments included and lunch can be booked in advance or purchased on the day in Stonyford Cottage Tea Room
