H.Rugg reviewed: Have a Go Stone Carving

"We booked this activity as a family of 4 (youngest 16 years old) and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the stone-carving taster course. Jonathan, our instructor, clearly had a wealth of experience and plenty of enthusiasm to go with it! After learning a few basics, we were able to choose a simple design to carve into a small limestone slab. I found it both therapeutic and rewarding, and would very happily come again for a longer session in the future."

Burngate Purbeck Stone Centre responded:

" Hi Heather, Thank You so much for your 5* review. We are really pleased you and family had such a great time, with Jonathan as your tutor. Looking forward to welcoming you back to Burngate in the near future! Kind regards, David Wise (Centre Manager) "
