 Shoebury Stonecarvers Group

Shoebury Stonecarvers Group is a small group of stone carvers that was led by local artist Jim Davis who lived  in the area for many years. Sadly Jim died last year.
 Some of SAC members may have known him. 
Jim worked all over the country and was a Freeman of the City of London
He was commissioned by the Royal family and many city firms.
We want to pass on his techniques and knowledge to other artists
 and as part of his legacy we want to keep his studio open.
We would welcome anyone who would like a
10 week course in stone carving. 

People are welcome to come and see us without any obligation.
It is quite a unique opportunity as there are no other stone carving groups in Essex that meet on a weekly basis.
If you would like more information please contact.
