Art and Design KS3 / GCSE: The craft of stone carving
Paul Martin meets Ann-Margreth Bohl, sculptor-in-residence at Painswick’s Rococo Gardens, for a lesson in the ancient art of stone carving.
She shows him some of the tools and techniques needed to start sculpting.
Stone carving is a demanding art form but the results can be very rewarding.
This clip is from the series Paul Martin's Handmade Tale.
Could be used as a starting point for a class project on sculpture or three-dimensional design.
Students could research artist Ann-Margreth Bohl, annotating her influences and mind mapping the processes that she applies to her craft.
They could draw upon organic forms to create a sculpture from paper and cardboard.
This clip will be relevant for teaching art and design at KS3 and GCSE in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and National 4 and 5 in Scotland.
