Courses & Activities

Try something new and keep tradition alive

We offer a variety of short courses and activities for all levels of experience, from complete beginners to more experienced carvers. We teach children, families and adults at the Centre and, from six years old, you can try your hand at this traditional craft and create your own unique masterpiece. We have a full teaching schedule and offer courses all year, whatever the weather. The courses are all flexible and you can learn relief carving and sculpture with experienced local stone carvers and masons.

If you are unable to attend a scheduled course date but would still like to try some stone carving, please contact the Centre to arrange some one to one carving tuition.
