lp-2.aspxA joint project between  The RSPB at Radipole Lake and sculptor Sarah Gilpin, funded by The Heritage Lottery: just turn up on workshop days and have a go!

  • No experience needed
  • All tools provided
  • One to one tuition
  • No charge


  • First workshop Sunday April 7th
  • Second workshop Saturday April 13th
  • Follow on workshops first Sunday of each month till September
  • Look out for additional workshop days throughout the summer

A large block of Portland Stone sits beside the main footpath through the Radipole Lake nature reserve.  Watch it change gradually over the summer of 2013 – or help to change it!  Weather permitting, Sarah will be working on the stone on the first Sunday of each month and welcoming anyone who wants to have go.  If you have never held a stone chisel in your hand before, now is your chance.  And if you want to hone your skills over the summer, you are welcome to return as many times as you want. Experienced carvers are also welcome – it is a large stone!
