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.

Covid-19 Information

The weekly classes have been cancelled since the middle of March due to the Coronavirus epidemic. As soon as we have been given the go ahead I will start them up again, maybe for the term starting in June. I may run extra sessions to keep the classes smaller for social distancing. Please contact me for details.

About The Weekly Classes

Over an 8-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. We are presently running with reduced numbers for social distancing. Please contact Kate before booking.

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.

What Is Included?

All tools and refreshments included. Glasses or safety glasses must be worn at all times while working with stone.

What Is Not Included?

The cost of stone is not included as individual projects vary. It is available to purchase at the sessions – prices from £15.

What To Bring

Old clothes, stout shoes. 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!
