Skelton Workshops, Stone Carving, Artelium, Streat Lane, BN6 8SA



Dear Students All,


We just have 2 weeks left at Blabers Mead after tomorrow (May 13th) and Saturday, so if any of you wish to come   and say 'Goodbye ' to the place, feel free.

We will be keeping the Sculpture Garden where exhibitions will take place in the future.


We are on track to move officially on June 18th, but 'phase one' is tomorrow.


We will start our next batch of classes on Wednesday June 22nd (afternoon, 2 – 5) taught by Charly Greensted and Thursday June 23rd (morning, 10 – 1) taught by Graham Alborough. These will be our new days from now on.


We have a three day Course, (now booking) on Tuesday July 5th- Thursday 7th'' taught by Graham and Helen Mary.


Things will be a little disorganised at first while we find our feet, but we will soon settle.


We will be offering Taster Days at Artelium in May on Saturday 14th, Saturday 21st and Sunday 29th as part of The Brighton Festival.


Looking forward to seeing you, those who are new to us and of course all of our regulars alike.


We also look forward to establishing ourselves in this beautiful new setting.


Helen Mary


On June 18th we took 'Figure Head' – our yew wood sculpture that has adorned the workshop for 35 years – up the road to our new home at ARTELIUM, a vineyard in Streat Lane which is offering us new accommodation.
