The Stone Carving Studio with Kate Semple

Kate is a clear, energetic and inspiring teacher who creates a friendly and supportive studio space.

I really enjoyed learning to carve with her, including her pushing me into new territory.

About The Weekly Classes

Over a 10-week term students can complete a simple project or spend longer on a more complicated piece. Kate will help you develop an idea then guide you through the techniques required to create your own sculpture. Courses have a maximum of 7 places. Please contact Kate before booking for a chat. If a course if full she may be able to swap people round to fit everyone in.

Many people become totally hooked on this wonderful art and come back year after year. Kate has been teaching some of her students for more than a decade! The Stone Carving Studio also runs trips to exhibitions and places of interest every year.
