Stone carving with Simon Keeley

Location: Quirky Workshops, Poplin Dub, Greystoke, Penrith, CA11 0UT

Date: 16 May 2019

Join award winning stone carver Simon Keeley MA for this course. During this exciting course you will be carving a 3d form of your choice, be it abstract and 'Moorish' or something more traditional for your garden or home.

Simon will begin by leading you through the process of drawing and then creating a 'maquette' (a clay model) of your chosen subject, before teaching you how to transfer your design, from sketches on paper or in clay, directly onto the block before you begin carving.

Simon will then demonstrate the stone carving process, and then you will be guided through carving your own design in stone. The course will take place in an outdoor, unheated space under cover, out in the sunshine or in an old barn.

Your course fee includes refreshments and a lovely 2 course lunch all tuition and tools. The stone to carve will cost extra - between £20 to £40 per person depending on the stone - this will be payable on the day. Clay for the maquette is provided FOC
