Half-day workshop to carve a heraldic symbol in stone.
The Victorians loved all things Gothic, a style inspired by the carvings and symbols of medieval heraldry, and their Gothic Revival crests, crockets and caskets can be found on display in Arnos Vale.
Take inspiration from these atmospheric surroundings to carve a heraldic symbol such as a Tudor Rose or Fleur de Lis in stone to take home. Learn how to use traditional hand tools and techniques under the expert guidance of artist and stonemason Tanya Josham, in this perfect beginners' course for budding sculptors. Tea breaks are included in the half-day ticket.
