The Post Graduate course consists of an introductory or bridging year for graduates with no carving experience. During this first year the aim is to develop a good grounding in carving technique in wood or stone. This is followed by a year studying one of the following specialisations: ornamental wood carving, architectural stone carving or stone carving for contemporary sculptors. The program of study is designed to reflect the experience and aspiration of the individual. Elements of the diploma courses are also open to Post graduate students on an optional basis. These include ornament study, figure modeling, portrait modeling, artistic anatomy and contextual studies such as geology, art and architectural history, professional practice and an introduction to current conservation practices and ethics.
Post-graduate students are encouraged to undertake their own commissions whilst on the course and tutors can provide help and advice on these projects.
