PRIMITIVE CARVING WORKSHOP

 

Held at Grimes Graves, 4000, year old Neolithic flint mines.

 

Grimes Graves is in the heart of Breakland set in 35,000 acres of Thetford forest.

Over 2 days you will have the perfect opportunity to learn some ancient carving techniques and explore various materials to create artefacts such as the famous Venuses and animal totems left behind from the last retreating ice age.

During the course you will be introduced to flint technology and shown how to produce flint burins/drills and assisted to make various flint tools that were used by the creative artists of our past.

The raw materials that are available to work with consist of special qualities such as, Prehistoric Bog Oak, Antler, Rams Horn, Long Horn, Bone, Lime Stone and Chalk.

This is a special event for not only ourselves, but our clients also. Therefore you will be invited to camp on the site of Grimes Graves. 

Camping on Grimes Graves is extremely magical with its natural skyline where you are surrounded in history and natural beauty, this can only be experienced while attending a Will Lord course due to the special permission he has received.

On the evening of the first night, we will be cooking a juicy venison around the fire and serve this with a hearty vegetable stew.

Attendants may arrive from 4.00pm on the day prior to the event.
