I've been doing this course for several years now and it's a highlight of my week. I'd recommend it to anyone like me, looking for a relative hobby in retirement, or seeking to regain confidence during a period of unemployment. I guarantee you'll be delighted by your ability to make art, especially if you've never done it before. We'd love you to join us.

Miranda is a wonderful teacher
She can really see what you are trying to achieve and put you back on track if you are going wrong
I have never done stone carving before and I am really pleased with the 2 pieces that I have created
I am really lucky to have such a great class so close to home

This course is excellent because Miranda guides us through the processes to reach the finished piece. Likewise, Miranda leaves us work out what we want to do and helps us to reach our goals. It is very good as you can catch up on sessions if you miss one; the stone carving runs on Thursdays and Saturdays.
