This class was very enjoyable and informative. The class was held indoors in a warm, comfortable class room, even with tea & coffee provided. The instructor was informative and patient with all students and has broad experience. Most students created a very different piece and the instructor helped everyone to achieve a finished piece. . I will be attending a second course to refine my skills and learn how to handle a larger piece of stone. I would definitely recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn the basics of limestone sculpture.

I learnt about the different tools used to cut and texture limestone. Jenny help me touch up my design to create a 3D Bear and showed me a lot of tips and tricks to make to sculpting go smoothly. She was kind and patient and provided everyone with a list of tools and places they could be found.
