Have a go at stone carving.

My short have a go sessions are 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 been running these activities for almost 10 years now and always receive positive feedback from parents and those that have a go.

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

The activity lasts half an hour and each session is tailored for the individual. 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.
