Carved in Stone

Published Wednesday 12th of December 2012 11:13:08 AM

Upper Sixth Form Art students enjoyed a day of stone carving with acclaimed fine art sculptor, Nicolas Moreton, on Thursday 11 October. Nicolas, who has been described as �a modern master in the medium of stone carving�, spent the day with the boys sharing his experience and skills as they worked to create their very own sculptures.

Nicolas told us �Despite the inclement weather the boys in the workshop showed great appreciation and enthusiasm towards carving, and through taking part immediately gained a deeper knowledge and respect for this medium. The workshop itself seems to have created a buzz about the department with other boys wanting to see if they can have the opportunity to carve, which I am sure will be possible with the support of such forward thinking staff.�

The internationally recognised sculptor also spoke of his work, displayed both in the UK and overseas, in a fascinating talk to boys and staff.
