Beginners will be guided through the process of carving straight lines and curves, progressing on to leaves, flowers then a rose relief. More advanced carvers will have the opportunity to choose an item to carve, which could be an animal, a mythical beast or an architectural detail. They will then be guided through the various methods of approaching a carving in the round. Previous students have carved heads, animals, architectural items and ornament.

    Brilliant Course

    The last cost increase was very steep. It’s far too expensive. I know of people who done it in the past and can’t afford it anymore.
    Please keep the course in Bath (don’t move it to Radstock with the full time construction classes). Me and many others would not be able to take the course if it is in Radstock.

    Also enjoyed the 3 day carving competition.

    • Dear Tobias,

      In response to feedback, the Stone Carving course is being ran at our Bath city centre campus.

    I’ve learnt a great new set of skills which I look forward to building on. It’s been good fun and an excellent opportunity to switch my mind off for 3 hours a week and get absorbed in something creative. Nigel has been an excellent tutor – I’ll possibly do 3D carving next.
