Sunny carving weekend

Andrea, Kate, Lynn and Alan all came for a day’s carving over the weekend, and we had unbroken sunshine, it’s starting to feel a bit like spring! Lynn and Kate came down from Tavistock, for the day on Sunday to celebrate Lynn’s birthday (Andrea was a birthday visitor too this weekend). The tudor rose pattern is proving to be popular and both Andrea and Kate made versions of it in relief carving. Lynn made a very elegant ivy pattern on a long narrow piece of limestone and she plans to continue working on it at home. Alan follows in the footsteps of his son Peter, who spent a day with us just after Christmas. He started on a quite large Celtic cross, and will be coming back for our regular Thursday evening sessions to complete it. Thanks to all our carvers this weekend for their hard work and excellent company!

Festival of Stone in Bristol 31 May – 9 June 2013

Pete will be taking part in the Festival of Stone on the Quayside in Bristol from 4th-7th June. He will be one of the ‘competition carvers’ producing a piece of work over 4 days alongside other carvers from around the country and overseas. It promises to be a lot of fun and also very hard work! As well as working in public there is the pressure of creating something that will be judged by a panel including Peter Randall-Page and other world renowned sculptors. There is more info about the festival on their website.
