Hear what other people have to say about this workshop:
~ ―Thank you so much, I didn‘t think I was going to be able to do this and look at what I have created‖ Nichole
~ This was really terrific; what a great way to spend a weekend! Greg
~ ―It was a great experience, and he (Gary) has inspired me a lot!! Loved his encouragement and the way he taught‖
~ That was so much fun, thank you. The stone was easier to carve than I though it would be. Victoria
~ ―I can‘t believe I made that!!‖ Judy
~ Being a ‗left brained‘ person I have never produced anything artistic – until now. My piece sits in our garden and
still makes me smile when I see it. I thoroughly recommend this workshop to anyone, whether you think you are
creative or not – Fiona
