Nice venue and learning environment. I have attended two of these courses and find the venue and small group size good for learning these techniques. It is quite physical work and there is a lot to learn, so I'd recommended booking at least 2 sessions to finish a piece.

Excellent one day introduction for the complete beginner. As a complete novice, I turned up with slight apprehension for the one day drop in. But KT's experience and expertise put me at my ease. At KT's suggestion, I arrived with a clear idea of what I wanted to achieve in the one day which helped the process and KT guided me towards creating a piece of sculpture I am thrilled with. My piece now takes pride of place on my mantelpiece. Time allowing I will return for a longer course.

I attended a beginners letter carving course on Saturday. I would recommend this to anyone who has thought about taking this up as a hobby or more. The tuition is thorough, starting with basics and working up to carving your own piece. Credit to Katherine with her tireless enthusiasm and ability to be there for all of the students. I am about to buy my first tool kit for some home practice and will return again for some expert guidance in the future.
"Fantastic introduction to stone carving! KT has an amazing knowledge and you'll learn how to handle the tools and materials from the off. She's a wonderful teacher and makes a tremendous effort to ensure that everyone gets to grips with the craft and the most out of the day. Thoroughly recommended and well worth investing the time and money. Can't wait to go back and learn more!"

"I had a great time in Katherine's workshop. As a complete novice to stone-carving, she was very patient, supportive and clear in her instructions. She offered great flexibility in the type of stone we could work on and what we wanted to have a go at. It was brilliant that everyone in the workshop was doing a completely different type of carving, so I learned extra things from hearing Katherine teach the others and seeing their work take shape. It has made me excited to continue doing more carving and I came away with a completed relief in one day, which was a huge bonus! A great way to spend a Saturday!"

"The stone carving class with Katherine is an amazing experience, she will teach you the basic carving skills, show you different stone types, but also assist you by making the right decisions during the design proces. She will do everything to help you to come to the best result, with an ongoing enthusiasm!"

"Katie has a keen attention to detail. She gave great advice to ensure I achieved the best possible result with my stone carving".
Riccardo Fornezza -
"Katherine taught me for ten lessons how to carve a relief face sculpture. She has been extremely patient and she taught me how to carve from scratch. I suggest this teacher strongly because she can teach in relatively few classes how to carve stone with great results!"

"I thoroughly enjoyed the stone carving course by professional stone mason and artist Katie Worthington. Not only did Katie teach me some key techniques, she also helped with the creative process. A very good course for beginners. I have been inspired to do more".
