Who we are
At the Northern Sculpture Studios, we teach stone carving and letter carving, and make artwork and sculpture both to commission and as part of our ongoing artistic practice. We also sell products related to our courses (such as tools) and practice as artists/sculptors (such as greeting cards).
Our website address is: https://northernsculpturestudios.co.uk.
