1 thought on “Craft Courses”

  1. Stone carving workshop with Chris Swales in September was a really enjoyable day.
    I have never done stone carving before. I felt very supported by Chris, he made the whole experience very interesting. The meal and teas, with home made cakes were delicious and very nicely presented. I now have my home number in stone ready to put in our outside stone wall.
    I can now appreciate what skill it takes a stone mason to carve stone.
    I recommend anyone to go on this craft course
