Islamic Art Sculpting

  • BIG's Sculptor-in-Residence Andrew McAlistair Hood runs free, weekly Stone Sculpting workshop sessions to diverse volunteers. His ultimate objective with them is to create British Islamic art pieces using only salvaged/reclaimed stone.

    This is the only community project of this kind in the UK.

    For more information about Andrew and his work with BIG, visit his website.

    If you would like to support our work, we are currently funding for our Islamic Art Stone Sculpting Centre.

    To date we have received funding to support the construction of one stone bench. If you would like to sponsor other artwork for the site, please contact BIG.

Thank you for these valuable five sessions...If every ordinary gardener had access to these sessions, it would make growing food in home gardens on a larger scale a reality!...I looked forward to each session and will surely implement my earnings.

I was very reluctant to join but it's the best decision I made. I have met so many nice people, made lots of friends and learned so much about nature...I appreciate the fresh air [and] my surroundings a lot more. It has been good for me mentally and physically. Couldn't recommend it enough.
