Ancient Craft: Stone Carving

Saturday 7 July, 10am-4pm
Visual Arts Studio

£50 (£40 concessions, £15 under 16s)
For ages 14+ (under 18s must be accompanied by an adult)

Few decorative crafts can claim to be more ancient that stone carving, with the earliest carved objects being dated well into prehistory. Join Alan Micklethwaite, former Head Carver of Lincoln Cathedral, to be introduced to the basic techniques, tools and principles of stone carving, and work to complete a decorative carved relief motif in stone.

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

Please note before booking that the date of this workshop is different to that stated in our April – August 2018 brochure.
