Course Description

City & Guilds of London Art School has an unbroken tradition of teaching sculpture, stone and wood carving since it was founded in 1879. We play a crucial role in keeping alive the skills essential for preserving the world’s most important monuments and buildings, and are proud to offer the UK’s only postgraduate courses in carving.

Based upon the longstanding and very highly regarded Historic Carving PgDip course the new PgDip/MA Carving course already has a developed and tested approach to teaching carving at this level with excellent links to the industry offering you unparalleled opportunities to develop your skills and professional networks.

The course is offered as either a PgDip (30 weeks full time or 60 part time), concluding with an exhibition, as part of the Art School’s Summer Exhibition, or can be taken as an MA course (45 weeks full time or 75 part time), culminating in a Professional and Contextual Project Report. It is also possible to take the course as a PgDip and then following successful completion to choose to return at a later stage to undertake the final 60 credit unit, subject to the approval of a research project plan. In this way the Art School sets out to provide flexibility for learners to enable them to achieve postgraduate level study on this unique course.

With an emphasis on practical hand skills, research skills and problem solving this course provides an excellent basis for freelance employment within the creative and heritage sector.
