Thank you for an outstanding three days of tuition (and stimulating conversation). Truly inspirational!

"I spent two full and wonderful days on an individual stone carving course with Simon. Although I have some experience working with stone, I asked Simon to treat me as a beginner as I was keen to learn the correct use of hammer and chisel for both lettering and relief carving. Simon's tuition (and his work) is inspirational and he gave me such confidence using the tools. Before lunch on the first day, I was cutting letters into marble! Highly recommended and I am already considering another course next year!"
