Stone Relief Carving Course

Stone Relief Carving Course

This is a New Introductory Stone Relief Carving Course with Simon Burns-Cox at The Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. It is open to all levels with a maximum of 5 participants. All stone and tools can be borrowed or purchased.

Course Content

The course is designed as an Introduction to Stone Relief Carving using Limestone or Portland Stone with the aim of completing a simple project. You will first learn about the stone carving tools e.g the hammer, the claw and the chisel. You will also learn about the important techniques such as chopping, chasing and levelling. You will then think about a design, and learn how to draw and trace it out onto stone. The idea is to create a low to medium cut relief but those with more experience can attempt a more complicated design.

Course Price

£100 and stone and tools can be borrowed or purchased.
