Galleries: Students' work

The focus of the workshops I run is to provide the means for everyone to achieve their carving goals, however humble or ambitious. The small group sizes gives us the flexibility to work with lettering, relief, in-the-round carving on pretty much any subject,no matter what the starting level of skill.

As a society, I believe we do not work enough with our hands; the satisfying weight of the mallet, the feel of the chisel cutting into the stone are tremendously satisfying. It has been my very great pleasure to introduce a wide variety of people,of all ages, skills and backgrounds into this most fascinating and ancient art.

"just a note to say thanks for such an enjoyable weekend. Great tuition, good company and superb hospitality in a lovely setting. I absolutely loved learning a new skill and, although hard work, it was actually the most relaxing thing I've done for ages. Maybe I've found what I want to do when I grow up...........!"
