Soap Stone Carving - Animal

29 February - 10am-4pm




Join Reading sculptor McAlistair Hood in a stone carving workshop at the museum to produce a sculpture of your favourite animal.

Enjoy the unique carving properties of soapstone.

With a wealth of world sculpture reference material available at the workshop, and the expertise of the artist to guide you, you’ll have all you need to produce a relief carving that you will be proud of. Absolutely no pressure to complete your stone carving on the day; all are welcome to finish their work in the sculptor’s studio (just outside Reading) for free!

No artistic skills required – just bring your passion for animals.
