My daughters and I had an amazing time and I was really surprised at how much we learned in a short time. I could not fault the tutor, Johnathon. He was kind, encouraging, patient and very knowledgeable. Thank you.
Superb and exciting course
The day’s course on stone carving run by the tutor, Jonathan, was an absolute delight. It was very exciting to learn new skills in a new material and I will continue to develop my skills in the future. The location of the centre is superb with views over Swanage and the surrounding landscape.
He works easily with children, adults, individuals and groups.
He combines the precision skills of a stonemason with the artistic intuition of a sculptor and so is able to instruct and guide his students along whichever path they choose to follow. By sharing his knowledge and passion for carving, Jonathan has inspired me and many others to explore this exciting art-form.
His classes are always fun without being frivolous and although learning is a serious business it’s easy to pick up a lot of knowledge when you’re enjoying yourself. Time passes quickly and all too soon it seems it’s time to pack up… but then your are looking forward to the next class.
