Just setting this up for the moment. Work in progress!
Sculpture by the Lakes Two Day Deep Relief Carving Workshop.
I set up this workshop to teach how to carve a much deeper relief sculpture. The participants all picked a Greenman template to carve.
I decided to use a soft limestone from Malta with a fine grain to make it easier and faster to attain a finished sculpture. Not surprisingly the carvers each found their own style. Developing and searching the forms in personal & creative ways.
One student decided to add some extra details which he thought would amuse his younger siblings. A ladybird, a little woodworm and of course a cheeky wink! I’m continually amazed at how imagination can take you down some new paths and creative journeys.
A good weekend enjoyed by all at such a beautiful venue. Sculpture by the Lakes in Dorset is really worth a visit.
