An Enriching Experience: Stone-Carving Course Review

It was wonderful to receive this great review of the stone-carving course we held at the end of February

Thank you so much for such an enriching experience over the weekend!

I highly recommend for anyone interested in stone carving to come on one of your courses. Or anyone wanting something completely different to anything they’ve done before. The setting is peaceful. The scenery is stunning.
Being with you Victor in the studio was like reaching back into history. Your skill and knowledge is priceless. You have to experience it to believe it and I think everyone should try this. Stone lasts and we take for granted monuments and old buildings, I didn’t realise the human endeavour that has created all the marks and letters on buildings.

I really urge anyone who has an interest if they see your website or the Sheep’s Head Way one then do a course with you. It’s too good to miss. It was only a weekend and yet I’ve now got something new that I will practise and use and I will be back.

It’s very rare to meet someone who is a living example who has committed themselves to a path in life. But when you do it’s obvious that they are living their passion.

To see Victor use the chisels, it looked like they were part of him.
