See sculptor Nicolas Moreton in action at New College Oxford
May 1 @ 10:00 am - May 19 @ 4:00 pmFree – £8
Have you ever thought about what it takes to create an image in stone? New College is delighted to welcome sculptor Nicolas Moreton, who will spend three weeks carving a new work in our famous Cloisters, where his retrospective exhibition ‘Making a Mark’ is currently on display.
On weekdays from 25th April-13th May, Nicolas will demonstrate the art of stone carving to visitors, and will be available to answer questions and talk about stone as a medium for artistic expression.
Nicolas works in a traditional manner, believing that while it is physically demanding, it is only the intimate connection between stone and hand tools that can create an object with its own intrinsic personality.
He is an elected member of the Royal Society of Sculptors and has been working stone for 35 years. Visitors will be able to not only view highlights from his career as part of the exhibition, but also see his latest work being crafted.
There will be no additional charge to view Nicolas in action or the exhibition – all visitors will be able to view it as part of the ordinary tourist fee. As such, it will be completely free to Oxford residents.
