    I really enjoyed this course. I started as a complete beginner, but on the first day I overcame my doubt whether I could make a flat surface. Ray was brilliant at giving enough support and guidance, but at the same time leaving you to learn through experience. By day four I was laughing whilst putting together and attaching to the wall the window our group built. Did I think it was possible on day 1? No way.

    Awesome experience, which has given me a new passion – stonemasonry – and also given me enough confidence, due to the knowledge gained on this course, to attempt the 3D Stonemasonry course in due course.
