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.

Mike from Wincanton


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. Kate will guide participants through the processes involved in designing and making their own sculpture. Whether their ideas are contemporary and abstract, or traditional and representational, Kate will help them carve their block of stone into a finished sculpture to take home.
