Langley Iddins reviewed: Introduction to Lettering & Engraving - Stone Carving Skills

"A very good introduction to letter cutting in stone. With Alan's patient and helpful guidance it demonstrated that this is a skill which requires months, perhaps years of practice to master. A most enjoyable three hours."

Burngate Purbeck Stone Centre responded:

"Hi Langley, thank you very much for your review. Glad to hear you had an enjoyable time. We'd love to welcome you to Burngate again soon! Regards, David Wise"
