CPD by - Steve Roche
Steve Roche is a Letter Carver and Stonemason specialising in handmade inscriptions and traditional masonry techniques. With work ranging from formal hand-cut memorials to restoration of old buildings to public art projects.
Over the last few years Steve has been commissioned to do a number of public art projects: - a 12-ton Yorkstone boulder with a stags head pattern motif. - turning local Mosborough residents thumbprints into geometric labyrinths cut in stone. - a fossil-limestone boulder with a sycamore seed carved in the top and a poem spiralling round the stone in the motion of the seed. You can have a look at his site here www.rochestone.co.uk
Steve will be talking about:
- His previous work with housebuilders, architects and community groups, concepting public art projects to best benefit the stakeholders and fulfil the planning conditions.
- Stone selection and using traditional techniques in contemporary ways.
- Inscription design, from dip-pen and ink to mallet and chisel on stone.
There will be a limited selection of drinks free of charge at the CPD following which we will continue the social event at the University Arms.
