Carving and Historic Crafts

at City & Guilds of London Art School

Learn about the ancient practices of stone and wood carving, making paints from natural pigments and gilding. Observe demonstrations, exhibitions, talks and live carving competitions, and try your hand at stone carving and other activities.

City & Guilds of London Art School is a small, specialist art school with an outstanding reputation for excellence in contemporary fine art, conservation, and the traditional skills of historic carving in stone and wood. Courses are taught at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate level, and the Art School provides the only full-time study of carving available at graduate level in the UK.

Located since 1879 in one of Kennington’s fine Georgian terraces, and adjoining beautiful Cleaver Square, the Art School nurtures and supports its community of students in the knowledge that one day soon they will play an important role in safeguarding the future of the UK’s cultural heritage and arts.
