It doesn’t seem a year since Simon Keeley demonstrated his stone carving skills to our Residents, and this week he ran a work shop for those who were keen to give it a try, with some excellent results in under and hour and a half!
With a little help and lots of encouragement from Simon, it was heads down and the sound of chisels until a break for afternoon tea. Simon runs Stone Carving courses from a studio in the Birtley woodlands, and we are indeed lucky to have such a professional and highly talented artist in our midst!
