Peter Price will be taking the Stone Carving Class at The Potters Barn.


Peter Price produces original hand carved natural stone figures and sculptures. Some of his more famous pieces include Gargoyles and the Green Man's head covered in moss, grown to a secret recipe, that makes the head look hundreds of years old. As well as having a range of stock items Peter works to commission, one of his better known clients being the Alton Towers Hotel for which he made Alice in Wonderland themed sculptures.
Have a look at the Stone Carving Course Photos to see what you could produce in just one day under the guidance of Peter Price.

Some Comments on the course:-
Hello Andy,
Just a small note to say a big thank you for a wonderful weekend - I really enjoyed the stone carving, and my dog's head is now sitting proudly on the patio. I still can't believe that I actually made it, with a lot of guidance and support from Pete of course! I've written a short piece below, in case you're looking for customer feedback for the website - plese feel free to use some/all of it, if you like.
Thanks again, Teresa
 

Pete Price.  Finished Green Man

I had no idea if I would like stone carving (or if stone carving would like me!), so booking the 2-day course was a bit of a gamble. However, I wanted to make something a little different, so I decided to allow plenty of time to give it my best shot. I was not disappointed. Pete was a friendly instructor, extremely skilled at his craft and very enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge and experience with the group. He was always quick to offer practical suggestions to correct and improve our work, but without compromising our own mental image of the finished work. The cold buffet lunches were really tasty (especially the home-grown tomatoes), and set us up nicely for the rest of the day. At the end of the weekend, I took home a pretty good carving of my dog's head... and a pair of rather stiff arms!
 
Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, The Potters Barn is a genuine breath of fresh air. And as for the stone carving? If you want to try something different, don't hesitate to sign up for one of Pete's courses ... I would thoroughly recommend it!

I also thoroughly enjoyed Peter's stone carving course on October 9th. I was amazed at the simplicity of the tools and the fact that we all managed to make something in so short a time. The food was good too! I would (and have) recommended it to a friend. Regards. Kath
