Stone Carving Workshops for Beginners

23rd March and the 20th April 2019


  • The Stone carving workshops will give you the opportunity to sculpt a small relief of your own design ( or by using one of my templates )  on a piece of Portland Stone.
  • The course is suitable for ages 12+
  • Tools and materials are supplied as well as protective safety glasses.
  • Appropriate clothing to be worn (i.e. enclosed shoes)
  • The stones vary in size but to give you a rough idea here are some sizes. 22 x 20cms, 18 x 22cms. If you have a design in mind and can print out different sizes that would be great.
  • Coffee & Tea supplied. 
  • If you decide to use your own design please bring images/drawings.

The cost of the one day course is £85. To reserve a place or make an enquiry you can E-mail me. or phone 07460467116

There is also a wide selection of tasty, locally sourced cakes and lunches available in the adjacent White Stones Art Café. All participants receive a 10% discount on food and drinks purchased in the Café.

Come and have a go. Let your creative side come out.

Sculpture is easy! You just carve down to the skin and stop! Michaelangelo.
