The Stone Carving Studio with Kate Semple

I had always wanted to try stone carving. Kate’s studio and her endless enthusiasm and skill allowed me to do so and get great pleasure in the whole process. Simply brilliant.

Short Courses and Covid-19

The course in May was cancelled due to the Coronavirus epidemic. Those who were booked on asked to be transferred onto the September course. This means I have too many for the session, so I have decided to add 2 more 3 day courses in September so everyone can come along. The classes will also be smaller for better social distancing.

None of us are sure of exactly how the situation will progress, I am hoping by September this will be possible. If not I am happy to roll over bookings until the following year or give a refund.

Sculpture For Beginners

3-day course (10am – 4pm)

The three-day courses are an intensive and focused introduction to Kate’s approach to sculpture and stone carving, for people of all ages and abilities.

Whether their ideas are contemporary and abstract, or traditional and representational, Kate will help them carve their block of stone into a finished sculpture.

What Is Included?

All tools and materials are included. Glasses or safety glasses must be worn at all times while working with stone. Tea, coffee, biscuits and lively conversation are available throughout the course.

What To Bring

Old clothes, stout shoes. Please bring a packed lunch. Kate has lots of sources of inspiration at the studio, however, it’s always a good idea to think about what you would like to make and bring some pictures along if you can. Traditional or contemporary, simple or complicated, Kate can help you through!
