Stone Carving - Bec Freiesleben for Artsreach Children's Summer Workshops

9th August 2019 to 9th August 2019

Dorset has a rich heritage of stone quarrying and carving, and this is an exciting opportunity to learn this traditional craft. Design a tile illustrating some of Dorset’s wonderful array of flowers, animals, birds and plants. Using lettering chisels and ‘dummies’, work on a tile of soft, creamy Bath stone, then paint your masterpiece in a range of exciting colours. Come armed with an idea and leave with your very own unique stone carving. Dress for mess, wear shoes with closed toes and tie back long hair. This workshop is part of the Artsreach Creative Summer Programme and is suitable for ages 6+
