PgDip/MA Carving

Historic Carving students are diverse in age and experience.

What they all have in common is the ability to develop a good eye, an interest in the history of our craft and a great enthusiasm for carving. Whilst the majority of students come from the UK, we have also worked with students from Ireland, Spain, Holland, Italy, Bulgaria, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, India, Zimbabwe, Barbados, Canada and the United States.
