If there is the odd morning/afternoon that you can’t make there is some flexibility between sessions.

RAILWAY STUDIOS are on the trading estate, first left after the station leaving Charlbury. The studios are spacious, bright and airy and there is plenty of parking. Workshops will take place outside when the weather permits it!

In these courses of six morning/afternoon workshops you will be working with blocks of natural limestone, and will be given enough guidance through the process of stone carving to complete a small sculpture.

Stone carving workshops will cover:

Discussion of preliminary ideas - if you have ideas of what you would like to carve do bring these with you, equally it is fine if you would like to wait and see what the stone suggests!

Demonstration of stone carving techniques and use of hand tools - mallets, chisels, rasps & sandpaper.

Working on own piece with one-to-one guidance at every stage, from 'roughing out' the basic three-dimensional form to completion.

Advice on finishing the surface of the stone.

No experience necessary and no pressure to create a masterpiece..but it may well happen!

Coffee/tea and biscuits provided
