Here in our studios we have built an environment which is both industrious and contemplative. Everyday we seek to create beauty and meaning in our approach to both the making and teaching of Art, Design and Sculpture.

Alan Micklethwaite

Alan has been a practising stone carver for over twenty years, and has established his reputation as one of the country’s finest restoration carvers. As well as having a Master’s Degree in Fine Art and a conservation diploma, he served an apprenticeship as a stone carver at Lincoln Cathedral, eventually becoming their head carver.

For more than a decade he has practised as a freelance sculptor and stone carver, working on contemporary sculpture commissions as well as continuing to use his widely acknowledged expertise and wealth of experience in the restoration of buildings and ancient monuments. His diverse portfolio, featuring both contemporary and traditional figurative work, demonstrates an intuitive understanding of materials and techniques.

Alan’s teaching experience is well established; as well as the many years he has spent teaching stone carving to apprentices, he has spent time as a university lecturer, teaching both stone carving and architectural conservation and has taught countless workshops and classes to both beginners and more experienced craftspeople.

In 2013, his book ‘Restoration Stone Carving’ was published, which has come to be regarded as a definitive work on the subject.

Tracey Micklethwaite

Tracey is an Artist whose work is focused on the human body and uses movement, photography and drawings as part of her working process, with finished pieces taking the form of paintings, sculpture and installations.

In contrast and as a compliment to this work, Tracey continues to explore the cut letter in stone with a particular interest in the poetic use of lettering and the combination of lettering with sculptural form.

Since completing her MA at the Royal College of Art, Tracey has also followed a career as an art lecturer, and is a fully qualified teacher with a PGCE in Further Education. While her ongoing study of movement and meditation also continue to inform and support her creative process.
