Easy to contact for any questions I had before the course. Course was well thought out and I achieved so much, from never having done anything with stone to an amazing piece. Tuition was calm, supportive, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I recommend this course to everyone.
The Green Man course was brilliant. Everything on the course was excellently prepared. We got a lovely individual tool roll to use and our stone was marked out ready for us so we could get on carving. The demo's were great and there were lots of individual attention. The workshop was very clean, with a nice kitchen and toilets. The biscuits and fruit kept me going during the breaks. I had a little trouble finding the entrance (it's round the back of the main Mill and I drove right past it), so I would leave a little extra time to find it on the first day. I'm really proud of my green man - thank you for all your help!
The Green Man course was one of the best courses I have ever done, and I was amazed at what I achieved in only 2 days.
Helen and John were both brilliant tutors.
The course was so good that I've now signed up onto the 8 week foundation course and fully expect to carry on with stone carving as a hobby going forward.
It's such a relaxing atmosphere and everyone is so very friendly and welcoming.
Thank you so much for a fabulous weekend carving. I loved being down at the mill and my green man looks fantastic. Excellent tutoring, fabulous weekend and great fun. I phoned Helen to book and had no trouble!
Hi I hope you received my apologies through your email in that I explained that I didn't receive your request for information. Please let me known if you are still interested in our course by telephone
Thoroughly enjoyed this 2 day course. Was amazed that over the two days, with no previous experience, I progressed from having a block of stone in front of me to taking home a Green Man that I am proud to put in the garden.
Helen and John are excellent, patient tutors and the association overall is a friendly and welcoming place. Thanks for your support & advice, if I lived closer to Halifax I'd be back for your longer courses!
Helen and John are excellent tutors. Thanks so much for helping to develop my skills and for being so friendly! The West Riding Stonecarving Association is a brilliant place. You've worked really hard to produce such a good workshop.
