Lettercarving in Slate with John Neilson

09-13 Jul 2018

Nant Hirwen, Wales

This course is aimed at people with some experience in design and carving so will not suit complete beginners. The loose theme will be ‘lettercarving in slate’, but it will be possible to accommodate other topics if you have something different you’d like to do. There will be a flexible balance between designing and carving.

We will also visit a local churchyard to look at many good late 18th and early 19th century slate gravestones. Nant Hirwen is a working farm in a very picturesque location; the buildings used for the course are barns recently converted to a high standard for courses and accommodation.

Cost: £300, which includes lunch. Pieces of Welsh slate will be available for purchase at cost price.

Accommodation: Self-catering dormitory accommodation available on site at £10-15, or there are 3 self-catering cottages within 3 miles which are currently available at favourable rates.
