Talks and Events.

I can visit your club or group and give you a talk detailing my training and experiences, the stone that I use, the projects that I have been involved with and ongoing projects. I can bring a selection of my tools with me for you to look at and hold.

I bring a slide show with me so I would need a wall or screen to project onto.

The talk is an hour with questions during and at the end. The costs starts at £60 which includes local travel, this increases depending on the distance from Lydney. 

If you would like to come to my studio I can give you a demonstration and a talk with slide show. This costs £7 / person, minimum 10 people. Tea, coffee and biscuits included but please bring a mug.
