Come and join us for an exciting day of stone-related activities, whether walking the Strand on our building-stone tours, watching the carving of an expert stone sculptor or learning to carve stone yourself, tools and materials provided. These personal encounters with stone will be followed by three talks exploring the geology of London, Roman sculpture and the training of new carvers by the City and Guilds.
All events are FREE and take place on the Strand Campus of King's College London. Please note that places are limited so we strongly advise that you book in advance.
