Year 1 Conservation: Stone Carving in the artist’s studio

Our Conservation course is one of the only courses that trains students to work as conservators of objects made of stone and stone related materials (as well of course as wood and decorative surfaces). We strongly believe that in order to make conservation decisions you really need to know about what it takes to make things as well.. Here are our 1st year students involved in one of the Historic Crafts that they learn during the year – Stone Carving. They are working in the beautiful carving workshop of renowned local stone sculptor and specialist letter cutter Tom Young and as you can see in just a week they have spectacular results and a much deeper understanding of how stone behaves.
