Course tuition is by Charly Greensted,  Graham Alborough and Fergus Davidson  with Helen Mary Skelton as occasional tutor.

2024 courses are run as six sequential 5-week terms. A five-week course costs £180. It's possible to book two courses back-to-back to make a 10-week term, at a cost of £360. Classes run from 10.00am to 1.00pm.

In addition we will run a 2-day and a 3-day course, costing £144 and £216 respectively. Classes run from 10.00am to 5.00pm.

Taster courses are available on an ad-hoc basis whenever a course is running (Wednesday, Thursday, or Saturday), subject to available spaces, at a daily cost of £36, which includes a starter piece of stone (soapstone for carving or slate for lettercutting). Please contact us to determine available slots.

Every course will have 12 places available.

The website will shortly have a booking calendar available so you can choose the course you want to participate in and pay online. In the meantime please contact us with any enquiries!
