Stone Carving Course

Stone Carving Course

Saturday 23rd March 10 - 4 Price £65 materials incuded. Please bring a packed lunch. tea, coffee and biscuits provided
In this introductory course led by Rachel Gundry, there will be examples of the Roman alphabet to follow, and you will be shown how to draw your own letters and set them out on the stone. (Anyone who wishes to carve other motifs or illustrations on their stone can do that). There will be a demonstration of technique, introduction to tools, books and stone samples to look at. The stone used for carving will be Maltese limestone, especially suitable for beginners. You will be able to take away your stone carving at the end of the day.
Rachel Gundry has been working in art, design and lettering for many years. After leaving work as a designer in a stone-carving studio she learnt the craft of letter cutting and now makes headstones, house signs, and inscriptions for the garden. Other projects have been making slate benches and a sundial for a school garden, working with children to design their own letterforms, and preparing work for exhibition in the Chelsea Physic Garden.
