Continuing in Stone - 8 week stone-carving course



Do you have a stone-carving or masonry project you’d like to work on, but need a little help and lack somewhere to work? You’re welcome to join this evening class session which runs weekly for eight weeks. Just book the start date marked as available to book and join us every subsequent week for the full eight weeks. Come along with your own project idea - perhaps its a memorial to a pet, a birdbath, a sculpture for your house or garden, or anything else! Working at your own pace, you’ll be working alongside other people who share your interest in carving, and with an experienced tutor for technical and creative support. If you have any questions, please get in touch via 'Message the tutor.'

What's included in the price?

Tools and safety equipment will be provided. Stone is not included; you’re welcome to bring your own or buy a piece from Burngate that is the right size and type for your project. Please wear old clothes and stout shoes or boots. You won’t need to prepare anything between sessions. The course fee includes complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits.
