Taking place in ESW's outdoor courtyard, this afternoon class will introduce you to hand tools and basic carving techniques. The course will allow time for individual focussed attention from the tutor who will guide and advise you on technique and your piece as it develops.

At the start of the course you will make a clay maquette to work from and then be given a block of limestone measuring approximately 30cm x 30cm x 30cm to make your carving from. You will be shown how to mark out your carving and will learn how to use hand tools to start carving into the stone. You will work at your own pace over the 6 weeks and the tutor will move around the class teaching one-on-one, with some group demonstrations of techniques.

Dates: Wednesdays, 13 July - 17 August 2022
