Weekend stone carving courses on the beautiful Welsh/Shropshire border



Weekend stone carving courses on the beautiful Wales/Shropshire border.

I have been teaching stone carving weekends for about 15 years and enjoy them immensely.

The days usually run from 9.30am - 5pm and I am flexible about what people want to do and make, whether it be relief, 3D or a specific idea for a sculpture.

This is a 2 day course suitable for all abilities - no age limits either! I have taught elderly people as well as lots of parents and children/teenagers with great success.

Enjoy a satisfying, creative and fun weekend; eat well, and take your creations home. You may find you come back several times!

I also run a weekly Tuesday stone carving workshop (10am-2pm) , but these have been on hold for the time being.

I specialise in distinctive stone pieces for the home and garden, inspired by nature and natural forms. If you are interested and want to know more please get in touch about the next available dates.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Materials, tools, tea, coffee and a lovely home made lunch are all included in the price.

Accommodation is available on request as well as camping in the grounds.

This workshop was a joy. Lottie's very extensive knowledge and experience with her calm and friendly manner helped us to get really absorbed in the carving and I had quite a sense of discovery as the weekend progressed. The lovely setting and the lunch, with such good company added to an excellent couple of days. I will be signing up again!

As a complete beginner I thoroughly enjoyed my first weekend workshop with Lottie. The setting is tranquil and friendly, lunch was great, and Lottie paced things very well, tailoring her teaching to each of our individual needs.
Highly recommended.

Lottie runs the courses in such a beautiful place, and does it with such talent, that it can't fail to inspire. As a novice, I got a real feel for what's involved, in a short weekend.
