Discover the art of stone carving

Ivan Hunter has been running stone sculpture classes for over a decade and is now offering classes to adults on Saturday mornings.

While Western classical stone sculpture can be technically challenging, Ivan has developed a teaching method that is much more suitable for beginners. You’ll learn how to choose a subject to work with and bring it to life in stone, whether it’s a person, animal, or mystical creature.

The course includes instruction on finishing and polishing your sculpture, resulting in a piece that you’ll be proud of, whether it’s simple or detailed. By the end of the course, you’ll have developed a new skill set and created a beautiful sculpture.
