The Course is designed for those who have participated on the Introductory Course or who have some basic experience. The course takes place either over two Saturday mornings to allow time for research, discussion, practice and the artistic process or on one full Saturday.
The Follow-Up Course in Stone Letter Carving is designed for those who have attend The Introductory course and want to continue or for those who have already some basic experience in Letter Carving. Before the course begins, you will be asked to look at Lettering and design styles to get a feel for Lettering and to think about what you would like to produce and carve during the course. This will save time during the session. The course is held either over two Saturday mornings (9.30am to 1.00pm ) or over one full Saturday (10am to 4.30pm). Next course will take place on Saturday 28th October 2017 from 10am to 4.30pm.
The course will include the following:
Day One from 9.30am to 1.00pm Students will decide what they would like to carve. Realistically, one word is achievable in this time if you have some experience. Before the carving process begins, there will be a discussion about style, proportion, spacing, and form. Students will then begin to draw their design in preparation for carving and then the carving process will begin.
Day Two from 9.30 to 1.00pm Students will work on their project with personalise tuition and guidance from Simon.
Course session £40 for half day/£60 for one full day. Stone is not included but can be purchased. Simon can also provide tools to borrow or purchase. You do not have to attend both days. There is a maximum of 5 participants. There is a cancellation and Health and Safety policy. In the event of cancellation, please let us know at least two weeks before the course begins otherwise the fees will be due in full. All participants must abide by The Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop’s Health and Safety Regulations.
