Could you have been a Reading Abbey Stone Mason?

There is only one way to find out.

Join Reading-based stone sculptor McAlistair Hood for this unique basic stone carving workshop and produce your own set piece stone carved image, such as may have once decorated Reading Abbey during its heyday.

  • Tools, stone (30 x 15 cms approx.) and everything else you will need are supplied
  • Fun facts and real stone mason anecdotes throughout the course
  • And absolutely no previous artistic skill required


Course duration 11am - 4pm
