Carving in stone within an artists studio in Spitalfields, East London.
All abilities welcome!
You will be guided on how to carve in stone. During the workshop, you will scratch a design idea—such as a relic, letter from the alphabet, architectural motif, or your horoscope—directly onto a stone tile and learn the art of carving. We’ll review your artwork over a drink and you can take your work home as a keepsake or gift.
We offer 3 workshop sessions throughout the day of which you can choose from. If you would like to turn your experience into a full day then you are of course welcome to book more sessions.
Materials & equipment provided:
Water & Cleaning towels
Aprons & Safety glasses
