Children's stone carving sessions
We run two hour have-a-go stone carving sessions for children every Tuesday during the main school holidays.
These sessions are suitable for children between 6-13 years. We teach children basic stone carving tool techniques and they can create their own masterpiece to take away. They can attend just one session or return weekly to work on a larger project, progressing from basic relief carvings to creating 3D sculpture.
Booking is essential for all our courses. It is not necessary for parents/carers to stay on site during these sessions. We include basic refreshments during the course - squash and biscuits. Children must wear old clothes and suitable footwear (no sandals).
Family stone carving sessions
We run these sessions every Thursday during the main school holidays and on Saturdays throughout the year. These are suitable for 6 - 80+ years. Call 01929 439405 for further information.
Booking is essential for all our courses. If your group size is 4 or more people, we can also arrange sessions at times that suit your holiday plans, subject to tutor availability.
