Geology | Carving
Jude trained as a mathematician and she has had a long career in the energy industry, working in teams of geologists and geophysicists to understand and quantify the characteristics of underground rock formations in countries as diverse as the Netherlands, Angola and Canada.
Her interest in geology led her to undertake a BA in Architectural Stone Carving from the City and Guilds of London Art School. After an intensive three years she has now graduated and established her own stone carving practice. Her passion for stone carving and lettering was initially sparked on a taster course similar to those offered at Burngate.
She loves working with her hands and with the natural properties of different stones. Her teaching experience includes running workshops to improve the management of UNESCO natural World Heritage sites.
Judith will be visiting Burngate this summer to teach her course Living Stone: The Origins and Properties of Purbeck.
