Family Activities

The Centre offers a variety of family activities all year, whatever the weather.

Burngate Stone Carving Centre children's classes

Children’s stone carving sessions

We run ‘Have a Go’ stone carving sessions for children every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the school holidays. Suitable for children between 8-13 years, we teach children basic stone carving tool techniques and they can create their own masterpiece to take away. They can attend just one session or return weekly to work on a larger project, progressing from basic relief carvings to creating 3D sculpture.

Booking is essential for all our courses. It is necessary for one parent/carer to stay on site and we include basic refreshments during the course. Children must wear old clothes and suitable footwear (no sandals).

Family Stone Carving Sessions

We run these ‘Have a Go’ sessions every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the main school holidays and on Saturdays throughout the year. These are suitable for 8 – 80+ years. 

Booking is essential for all our courses. If your group size is four or more people, we can also arrange sessions at times that suit your holiday plans (subject to tutor availability).
