Alan Valender reviewed: Stonecarving Weekend, Gloucestershire Cotswolds

"Great course and in an orchard with rustic buildings surrounded by the beautiful undulating Gloucestershire countryside. Sebastian approach is relaxed and is such that the subject is not made daunting. He encourages his trainees to have a go carving whatever object they desire and makes the day fun to be part of. Thoroughly recommend to have a go and have an experience you'll never forget. "

"An enjoyable experience in a creative eclectic environment. An opportunity to carve with high levels of autonomy. Sebastian. Is a very light touch teacher allowing students to find their own way. Leaving inspired to do more carving and desire to learn more. "

"Have just returned from a very enjoyable weekend course with Sebastian. I wasn’t at all sure what to expect - whether I would have the ability to create something or indeed strength required to carve stone. I needn’t have worried. Sebastian quickly explained the techniques and tools I would use and left me to familiarise myself with both. Before I knew it he had advised me on a piece of stone to work with and I was immersed in the carving. At the end of the first day in a lovely setting, both myself and the other members of the small group had made great progress towards our designs. The second day also flew by and I am very proud of the sculpture I have made. I would thoroughly recommend this course to everyone."

"As I stand in my workshop 2 weeks after my training weekend with Sebastian Rasch, I'm looking at my next piece in a different frame of mind to that before the course. Sebastian has inspired me to see that after 9 years of cutting small stone stone with hand tools, I can be confident in my ability to move on to real and larger pieces. I never knew that I could cut into stone, and see that is as good a piece as any other. Now I can. My sincere thanks go to Sebastian for giving me the confidence to continue with larger and more interesting work. From the fantastic pieces that the other people on course produced, I'm sure that they have confidence too. Especially as they were 1st time stone cutters aged 16 upwards. If you're uncertain, don't be. Sebastian will guide you."
