AVON Heath Country Park, near Ringwood is hosting one-day adult sculpture workshops.

The January workshops are being run by Dorset sculptor Mark Vyvyan-Penney in response to public interest he received when creating giant play sculptures at the park.

Each workshop offers the opportunity to work in wood, stone and different materials, with time to try out a range of carving techniques, new ideas and patterns.

The sessions are suitable for participants with a range of skills, from beginners to those with some experience. They cost £25 a class and tools and materials will be provided.

For information contact Mr Vyvyan-Penney on 01305 812125, or email markvyvyan@hotmail.com.

Workshop dates are at dorsetforyou.com/avonheath. Call Katy Scanlon on 01425 478082 or drop into the Discovery Centre at the park.
