Limestone Carving Workshop by Damien Lucas
The workshop is the ultimate art and wine experience. Damien Lucas will guide you through this two-day workshop to produce your own limestone sculpture from drawings or clay sketches.
Bring to life your ideas as you visualise the sculpture from the block using the tools and methods learned during the workshop. The physical and energetic nature of the carving process means that this workshop is bound to be both challenging and fun for participants.
The workshop caters to different artistic levels, from beginners to proficient artists.
Day One is all about the carving process and possible project ideas. Then you will bring your idea to a drawing and create a clay maquette to have a better sense of the form. In the afternoon, participants start to work on the half block stone roughing it out and removing gross mass that doesn’t belong to the design.
Day Two is developing the sculpture details, adjusting proportions and overall form.
