Have a go at stone carving.

I really hope to bring back my activities next year, it is an excellent way to see how fun stone carving is and how engaging it can be for children who may struggle with their concentration. I have had alot of positive feedback from parents whose youngsters have a short attention span.

It is also a great activity for the whole family and I welcome bookings for all ages.

The activity lasts at least half an hour but up to 45 minutes, each have a go session is tailored for each individual and some are happy to finish within the shorter time. I don’t take over the session but guide them and show them how to carve what they want and obviously help them to the best of their ability.

The stone is 4 inches square but I can cut different proportions to suit the design (by prior arrangement). It is Jurassic limestone which is safe to carve without a mask and you can carve your initial on one side and then another design on the other side. 

I provide safety goggles and all the equipment but please wear sturdy shoes, no dangly earrings and hair must be tied back.

This activity costs £20 per person.

I understand that not all school holidays happen at the same time. I am happy to accommodate other dates and times. Just get in touch.

Suitable for ages 5+.

For children under 10 a parent or guardian must be there at all times.

Here is Hamish and Callum having a go at carving their initials.

I also run tailored courses for adults one to one or up to 3 at a time, prices start at £35 for a full hour using a piece of small limestone.

Or £350 for a 15 hour course and a piece of Limestone 7 x 7 x 10 inches cubed. The times can be booked convenient to you but needs to be booked 1 month in advance.
