Stone Carving: Green Man

The Course

A two-day workshop teaching participants how to mark out, rough out and finish a Green Man design in Bath stone. The course will give people the opportunity to either carve their own design or copy carve one using a template. 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 Tutors

Will Spankie trained as a sculptor in 1990 at Sir John Cass School of Art in London, and later at Central St. Martins School of Art. He undertakes private and public commissions from his Brighton base, and has experience in teaching courses at a variety of levels.

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