Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am a stonemason of about 15 years experience. After many years of work I find that stone carving is becoming physically too demanding on my body, particularly my hands from using machine and hand tools and I am looking to move my career in a different direction before I suffer permanent damage.
During the last few years I have undertook some sculpture restoration in stone and ceramic and it is this area I would like to focus on. To work at the level I would like, I feel it would be of massive benefit for me to study classical sculpture and to improve my draftsmanship, and to this end I have applied to study the two year program at the Academy of Art, Barcelona.
I wondered if this is the type of training your organisation funds, and if so, how do I apply?
A link to the Art Academy is below, and also a link to my website so you can see my previous work.
If this is not the kind of funding you offer can you recommend any other organisations?
