The Stone Carving Studio with Kate Semple

Avebury to McMarmilloyds Yard

As well as working in the studio, Kate and her stone carvers have been out and about on some “school trips”.

Back in April, when the Beast from the East was hanging round, we had an atmospheric trip to Avebury. Julie, who comes on a Saturday, has also recently completed a degree in archaeology, so gave us a fascinating tour round the site in the mist and cold. Afterwards we had a pub lunch and a visit to McMarmilloyds near Marlborough, who stock and sell exotic stone to carve.
