Unfortunately, we are not running any carving courses for the foreseeable future.
This decision has been made in accordance with government guidelines regarding the Coronavirus, for the health and safety of  all concerned.
We will begin teaching again when this difficult time has passed, and all gift certificates will remain valid until they can be fulfilled.

To this end we will be very flexible with course dates when we can begin teaching again, to make it easier for students holding a gift certificate to book onto a date to suit them.

My wife booked me on this course as a surprise as I’d expressed a vague interest in carving. 
What a day!!! Tracey and Alan are really friendly and his relaxed teaching method is perfect. I carved a Yorkshire rose by following his very clear instructions. Friends and family can’t believe what I’ve done. If you fancy a go at stone carving, and there are lots of designs a beginner can try, then I would really recommend you get in touch with Tracey and Alan. 
Thank you so much for a great day.


If you have the slightest interest in stone carving, get yourself down to Driffield! I spent two days learning and carving with Alan and Tracey and cannot recommend it enough.

I had a great time and learned so much about general stone carving and the restoration carving that I was particularly interested in. Alan was so generous with his time and I can’t believe how much I was able to achieve. He is a great teacher and both he and Tracey were so welcoming.

Tracey even went above and beyond to work with me and my hectic schedule to sort out a couple of dates that would work. 

My general interest in stone carving has been absolutely set alight and I can’t wait to get stuck in on a project at home. At least until I can get back down to Driffield!! 🙂


Had a fantastic day on the Knot work carving course. Learnt so much and I’m really pleased with the finished piece. 
Alan and Tracey are very friendly, the facilities are great, and it’s a lovely relaxed environment in which to learn a new skill. 
I’ve never picked up a hammer and chisel before and I managed to make something I’m really happy with. I’ll certainly be back in the future.
