2017 COURSE DATES

 

Due to the addictive nature of stone carving (or possibly Jenny’s wonderful lunches) approximately 50% of places are taken by returning students.

In the past the weekends have been focused around relief carving, lettering or three-dimensional sculptural work.

This year the days will be less specific so if you are only interested in, say, carving a torso or lettering a house sign, you can do whatever you want on any of the days throughout the year.

The courses are run at weekends, booking for two days doesn’t have to be on the one weekend, you can do, say, Sunday in June and Saturday in July if  that’s what works for you.

In addition, we are open on Tuesday evenings from April 4th until the clocks go back in October.

In most cases the stone is included in the course fee. However for larger projects I, obviously, do have to make an additional charge to cover costs.

 

Remember - We now do Gift Vouchers for that unique present! – Please enquire
