Wood carving classes

The Old Primary School in Walton has been a wood carving studio since 1998. Founded by sculptor Anthony Griffiths the workshop facilities have been developed and improved over the years, helping to create the perfect venue for wood carving. The old school continues to be a place of inspiration and learning and is now run by Charlie.

The fully equipped studios have excellent light and space and good facilities for wood carving within a safe working environment.
