Designing and providing
quality stone-work and tuition. 

Stone carving courses, bespoke memorials & inscriptions, near Salisbury, Wiltshire

We provide excellent stonework of all kinds, specialising in the design and production of memorials and inscriptions, and in the teaching of stone-carving.


We have the skills to create and install distinctive stonework and sculpture, suitable for both internal and external spaces. All commissions are hand carved, the only restriction on what can be made is dictated by the material and the imagination.

Based in Salisbury, Wiltshire, for over 20 years, our studio is located in Bowerchalke in the Chalke Valley. It is a light and spacious place in which to work on bespoke commissions and to teach.

Bespoke memorials and inscriptions in stone


We work with bereaved families and institutions to make a fitting memorial for their loved ones, creating a design representing and celebrating their life. Uniquely people can be involved in both the design and the carving of the memorial itself. Memorials range from small plaques to headstones and sculptural pieces.  

Stone Carving courses and tuition


We offer term time and weekend classes for all abilities. Complete beginners will be guided through the whole process. For those with some experience, the emphasis will be on improving technique. We have students of every age and ability from Wiltshire and Hampshire attending our weekly courses, making classes exciting and diverse.

Day 1 in the Stone carving barn, nice friendly atmosphere, tea & coffee a plenty, great helpful instruction, without micromanagement. In the rural countryside, with quaint country lanes and trees everywhere. Thatched houses 🏘 it was like being a kid again, before everywhere got covered in concrete & bricks. I would definitely recommend this place for a stone carving course, easily a 5 star 🌟 in my opinion.

A brilliant introduction to stone carving, mixing a little tuition with lots of practical time to carve your chosen piece. The time flew by, only interrupted by Tam’s delicious lunch, and tea with her perfect cake! Highly recommended!

When my parents died Henry made and erected a headstone. He was incredibly patient and empathetic at this difficult time.  It’s perfect – I couldn’t imagine anything better.
