Spend a relaxing deep in the heart of the beautiful Scottish Borders at my rustic workshop.I teach small groups of complete beginners the gentle craft of stone-carving. No experience or artistic ability needed, just enthusiasm and curiosity.
At the end of our time together you will be amazed at what you have created! Discover how relaxing and satisfying it is to work in stone.
The ultimate escape from modern cares and an antidote to our screen-based experience.
