Our workshop will be set in the fabulous stone barn at Creake Abbey, with a fabulous onsite cafe and selection of shops on location.
The Abraxas Academy was concieved from years of nurturing and mentoring individuals who want to learn to carve stone.
We pride ourselves in our ability to deliver a wide range of carving courses, each one carefully planned and executed with the aim of encouraging all abilities.
Either build on existing skills or start from the
beginning, this course is suitable for absolute beginners and experienced
carvers alike. Using a range of historic plaster casts from the tutors personal
library, you will learn to transfer information not only using traditional
tools such as mallets and chisels, but also how choose and identify natural
stone for different jobs.
This guided course is structured to develop skill and nurture confidence for your next carving adventure.
Whether you a complete beginner or would like to hone
your skills, this course will be adaptable to whatever your level of skill. You
will learn about lettering design, layout, drawing your work directly onto the
stone and methods of carving with chisels. There will be plenty of opportunity
for individual tuition and expert guidance. Stone, tools and materials are
provided, though students are welcome to bring their own stone and project.
