We’re delighted to welcome the English sculptor Nigel Baxter to the West Cork Stone Symposium to talk about a project inspired by a Cork sculptor
Nigel will talk about his project to create a stone bust in tribute to the sculptor Seamus Murphy – a homage to the Cork craftsman and his legacy. The crowd-funded project saw Nigel work on the bust in the Crawford Gallery in Cork. The final piece of work is a wonderful testament to the traditions and connections that link generations of people who create with stone.
Nigel’s talk about his experience of ‘Sculpting the Sculptor’ is one a series of cultural events in the programme of the West Cork Stone Symposium.
The symposium, which includes dry stone walling and stone carving workshops will taking place in Durrus on the Sheep’s Head peninsula from 22nd-24th March 2019.
Philip’s Green Centre, Durrus.
