Since 2002 I have taught beginners stone carving and lettering courses to adults and children (twelve years old and upwards) in a variety of settings including schools, prisons and construction colleges.
I can teach between six and twelve students depending on the participants needs. The courses can be individually tailored from half day taster sessions to two to three week projects depending on the time available.
For beginners two day projects such as a clover leaf or Tudor Rose we use eight inch Bath stone blocks. I provide all the necessary stone, work benches, hand tools, and safety glasses. All students need is a room or covered space to carve in, sturdy footwear and old clothes.
