Stone Carving with John Candler

John Candler

Courses are held at the Craft Centre. All equipment and stone will be provided. The courses will be outside but under cover, so warm clothing may be necessary. Stone carving is dusty and dirty, so wear old clothes and strong shoes. A lunch of sandwiches, tea coffee etc will be provided. Courses start promptly at 10am and finish around 4pm.

There are 2 projects available.

1) A Simple Tudor Rose. A good beginners project using the basic set of tools used in carving. Most complete beginners can complete a finished Rose within a day.
2) Three Hares. This is a good second project. It requires a little more finesse and control of the tools than the Tudor Rose. It is a tighter design and so there is less room for error. It also takes a little longer, so you may not be able to complete it in a day. I can lend you tools or arrange a way for you to finish off the carving if it is necessary.
The ‘3 Hares ‘ is an ancient and mysterious symbol that has been found in Devon, Northern Germany and China, probably associated with ancient trade routes.
