Carving Workshops and Dates

Coat of Arms and Heraldry Stone Carving Workshop. (3 day)

Do you want to carve a family coat of arms, one relating to your surname, a place or an organization? 

Our three day courses well teach you the techniques involved and give you the opportunity to carve an original piece to keep or give as a present.

If on the other hand you are just interested in the beasts, symbols and devices attached to heraldry we can help you carve these too. 

Located in a picturesque hidden valley in rural Gloucestershire, Woodchester Mansion is currently the home of The Stonemasons Guild. The stonemasons Guild boasts a team of talented stonemasons and sculptors, led by the guilds Master Stephen L'Normand, who will provide expert tuition throughout your three day course. 

Whether you’re looking for an experience to remember with a piece you carved to take home, to add some new techniques to your sculptors or stonemasons repertoire or learn more about the crafts history and while getting the feel for the tools little change over time you’ll find the school’s extensive courses offer just the thing. 

Please bring any drawings, maquettes, ideas, sketch book and pencils.

By the end of your time with us you’ll be ready to go home and impress your family and friends with your newly aquired skills and knowledge! 

Please let us know if this course has been bought as a present as we can send a gift card for you to give.

If three consecutive days do not suit you three suitable days can be arranged, even consecutive Saturdays.
