Stone Carving: Tudor Rose

The Course

A two-day workshop teaching participants how to mark out, rough out and finish a Tudor Rose design in Bath stone. The course will also cover carving techniques, sharpening and look at where to buy tools and stone. By the end of the two days participants will be able to take away a finished carving.

The Tutor

Participant Information

The course is limited to six participants, who will receive practical tuition and hands-on experience.
