The London Stone Carving team are now running weekend courses and private tuition sessions throughout the year, covering all aspects of stone carving, from our fully equipped stone workshop, situated just off the old Kent Road, in Central London.

Our classes are friendly open and flexible in their scope, covering all aspects of stone carving for all skill levels.

We maintain a low student to teacher ratio, with no more than 6 students per course, meaning each student’s experience can be tailored to their ambition and skill level and insuring they receive plenty of one to one tuition and guidance.

We have plenty of resources here at the workshop to give you inspiration, but we are more than happy for you to bring your own ideas along so that we can let you realise them in stone.

Our team has broad and expert knowledge of every aspect of working stone, from decorative architectural and ornamental carving through to figurative and conceptual stone sculpture as well as letter drawing and cutting for memorials, signs and plaques.

Weekend courses cost £250 per person and everything needed to produce your carved piece will be provided: stone, tools, safety equipment and space.

Students will leave with the basic skills and knowledge needed to continue carving & we will be happy to give advice and guidance on sourcing of tools and stone etc to students once they have completed a course with us.

We also offer private one-to-one tuition. These private sessions can be tailored to the individual students’ specific skill level and area of interest; from sculptural and ornamental stone carving processes to letter drawing and cutting for memorials. Please get in touch directly to discuss bespoke private tuition sessions via the contact page.

I spent a fantastic weekend on the London Stone Carving beginners course a couple of weeks ago. Tom and Tom were great to work with and really encouraged us all. As someone who has never picked up a chisel and mallet in my life I was amazed at what we achieved over the weekend. I thoroughly recommend this course and huge thanks to the team for their tuition and help.

They do beautiful sculptural work and also offer helpful, practical courses for anyone interested in trying out the craft. Took one weekend course, would do another.

If you fancy a couple of days feeling like a bonafide sculptor / stone mason surrounded by legitimate works of Art then this is the course for you. The two Toms' were on hand to answer any question, big or small. A satisfying few days that I would certainly recommend.

Attended a weekend course at London Stone Carving and would highly recommend! The course leaders were great and managed a variety of skill levels with such ease. It was a perfect introduction and a thoughtful and enjoyable birthday present. I was surprised by how much we achieved in the two days. Thank you!
