Ancient Craft: Stone Carving - Sold Out

This workshop has now sold out, please call Box Office on 0115 846 7777 to be added to the waiting list.

With Alan Micklethwaite, former Head Carver at Lincoln Cathedral.

Few decorative crafts can claim to be more ancient than stone carving, with the earliest carved objects dating well into prehistory.

In this workshop 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 Micklethwaite 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.

These classes are run by craftspeople who undertake experimental archaeological work to try and understand how objects were made and used in the past.
