MA Carving

City & Guilds of London Art School is proud to offer the UK’s only Masters degree in Carving, specialising in either Stone Carving or Woodcarving. Our MA Carving may be used to facilitate a change of career from another discipline or to extend the possibilities of a current practice as a sculptor, carver or mason.

MA Carving is a one year course, or can be studied on a part-time basis over two years. On part completion of the syllabus, you can choose to take a break and be awarded a PGDip Carving. Following the successful submission of a project plan, you have the option to re-enrol onto the MA Carving, giving you the opportunity to reflect upon and deepen your research whilst producing a detailed project report.

The program of study is designed to reflect your individual experience and your aspirations, therefore elements of the MA course are available on an optional basis. These include ornament study, figure modelling, portrait modelling, artistic anatomy and contextual studies such as geology, art and architectural history, professional practice and an introduction to current conservation practices and ethics.

This is an intensive, primarily self-directed course and involves extended research projects that complement your individual research interests and practical experience.  A planned and agreed program or statement of intent is necessary before enrolling on the course. This course is accredited by Ravensbourne University London.
