Welcome to The Stone Carving Studio website

Kate Semple is a sculptor with nearly 30 years experience of working in stone. She loves to pass on the ancient skills she has learnt and guide people of all abilities, step by step, through the tools and processes involved in creating their own carving or sculpture.

Courses run throughout the year so do come along and become part of our stone carving community.

Learning to carve with Kate has been a fantastic experience. Allowing ‘hands-on’ almost from the very beginning, her teaching style is relaxed yet thorough, and allows you to develop your own sculpture at your own pace. She is clearly a very capable and accomplished stone carver and she uses her technical skills, her considerable knowledge and her artistic flair to bring out the very best in her ‘students’.

It is an absolute joy to attend her classes and develop one’s own skills in a friendly and supportive environment. But be warned; Kate’s classes are addictive – you’ll get withdrawal symptoms in the periods between ‘terms’.
