Stone Carving

Bec FreieslebenThis event has now finished

Using traditional tools, leave your creative mark on stone!

Dorset has a rich heritage of stone quarrying and carving, and here is an exciting opportunity to learn this traditional craft. Design a tile illustrating some of the array of Dorset wildlife such as long eared bats and brown hares to Lulworth Skippers and cornflowers. 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 only an idea and leave with your very own unique stone carving.

Dress for mess.  Wear shoes with closed toes and tie back long hair.

Morning Session 10am-12:30pm for ages 5 - 8 yrs
Afternoon Session 1:30pm-4pm for ages 9 yrs
