Design and Carve your own words, symbols or Relief carving with Pip Hall, a 3 day course.

Pip Hall is a nationally renowned professional Stone Carver of many years experience. Her work can be seen widely throughout the north of England in poetry walks and other beautiful additions to many of our city centres. These include the Stanza Stones near Ilkley (Simon Armitage) and the more recently completed Bronte Stones between Howarth and Thornton on the York Moors.

Not only a wonderful craftsman, Pip's also a great tutor and has a creative eye for layout. She will help you set out your words and pictures so they look really professional - as well as teaching you how to carve them. She comes with stone carving equipment and easels or blocks for a whole class. Pictures show student work.
