Amazing! Thoroughly enjoyed our “have a go” session with Jigger and could not believe the results we achieved from being complete novices. Stunning location too. Would highly recommend, to anyone wanting to do something a bit different, a crafty couple of hours immersed in tap-tapping away and trying something new. We shall be returning, along with our three impressed and now jealous teenagers, very soon we hope! Jigger is a very talented craftsman and has an incredible teaching quality that relaxes you in and makes it such an enjoyable experience. Lovely welcome too. Overall… what a day! Cannot wait to dream up some designs (not too ambitious) for another short session or have the courage to take it a step further and allow Jigger to help us create something even more impressive?! Worth every penny. Whatever your artistic/creative level is, we would say “have a go” as you won’t be disappointed. Have fun!

A fantastic, unique experience to end a holiday!

Jigger is extremely patient and helpful; he was happy to provide additional support to my mother who has MS. Lots of folders for those who need ideas of what design to do.

We are hoping to come back and enjoy again!

I’ve just been on a one day stone carving course. And it was fab.

The location is gorgeous, views all the way over to Isle of Wight and in lush green countryside.

There were 8 of us on the course. I brought some pictures for ideas and the tutor (Jigger Stockley) helped decide which would be do-able for a novice. The centre also had an ideas folder for anyone who didn’t bring pics.

Jigger spent time with all of us individually, going through the stages of creating relief work, all the way from initial drawing through to polishing and washing off the dust.

It was really absorbing and great to take your mind off everyday concerns (and we laughed that it’s also a great way to get rid of annoyances by hitting stone with a hammer and chisel 😊)

Really recommend.

A brilliant morning ‘having a go’ under Jigger’s expert tuition and guidance. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a truly memorable experience and a surprisingly good keepsake to take home! Thank you Jigger for your tuition and stories - we loved your tales of learning your craft and life as a master mason.

Spent a fantastic 2 hrs learning the basics of relief stone carving under the expert tuition of Jigger. There were only 3 in our session so had plenty of one to one help. Jigger was full of stories about stone masonry, how he got into it and show off the work of other masons who he has taught.
A great way to spend the morning on a dank Thursday.

A wonderful place to unwind and either try something new or perfect your technique. A haven, especially when life seems a little overwhelming. Or, even if you just want to unwind and have fun (or take out some frustration on a piece of rock!!). Run by a lovely team, this charity is superb. Jigger, our instructor, is an amazing craftsman, a true local talent. He is the most generous and kind spirit individual. An honour to meet such a lovely man who has many a tale to tell. And if you just want to have a cuppa and sit and look at the wonderful view, that's fine too. Buddy, the centre's dog will happily sit next to you and share his calm nature.

This is such an excellent place offering a wonderful opportunity to learn something completely new. I have no art skills but I signed up to support a 10 and 13 year old in the “Have a go” session. It was brilliant fun and all three of us took home a worthy piece of art/ carving. Jigger is an excellent patient tutor and true craftsman with lots of interesting tales about his craft and life. All the staff here are so friendly they really make your morning a great experience.
We Will be back !
You don’t need to be arty, 8-80 could do it and you will all get something out of it so well worth just giving it a go. Very reasonably priced.
Thank you to the whole team.

What a Fantastic way to spend a morning. 2 hours have a go session with Jigger .
My wife and I enjoyed every minute. Excellent morning out and beautiful views the only complaint, it went way to quick!!
The passion the staff have for carving is infectious and groups are small which suits the space available and means everyone gets plenty of guidance.

My 10-year-old granddaughter and I took the 2 hour ‘Have a go’ course. We really enjoyed ourselves and were surprised what we could achieve in 2 hours.
We got to choose our own subject, sketch it out with help and advice from the expert and execute the carving with as little or as much help as we needed. Everyone in our group was really pleased with their experience. Such lovely, friendly people. Thanks so much.

My 9 and 12 year olds had a great time on one of the 2 hour ‘have a go’ stone carving sessions. Ideally situated just outside Swanage, the centre has lovely views and offers something unique. Jigger, the tutor, was patient and knowledgeable and the office manager and volunteer were friendly and welcoming. The groups are small which suits the space available and means everyone gets plenty of guidance. Refreshments were offered halfway through the session, and there is a tiny, but well stocked shop selling I’ve cream and local crafts. There are also some exceptional stone pieces available for sale, or simply to admire. There is much scope for development here. Maybe children’s parties? I was really glad we discovered this place and my children loved creating their stone blocks. A really nice way to keep children off their screens for a bit! Great value too.
