Few decorative crafts can claim to be more ancient than stone carving, with the earliest carved objects being dated well into prehistory. In this workshop with Alan Micklethwaite, you will be introduced to the basic techniques, tools and principles of stone carving, and work to complete a decorative carved relief motif in stone. Alan has more than 20 years’ experience as a stone carver all over England, beginning his career at Lincoln Cathedral where he rose to become Head Carver.
