Welcome to Learnstonecarving.com

Stone carving is an enjoyable and relaxing way to create a piece of sculpture art. Begin by creating a simple stone sculpture and advance to being able to produce your own original piece such as a garden sculpture.

learn and explore, then create with passion.

With my years of experience in stone carving I am looking forward to sharing what I know with you so that you can also enjoy the fun of creating in limestone and other natural materials.

This site will be where I will share information about the how, where, and why of creating with this medium. How to get started, how to carve stone, where to work, where to purchase tools and why it is so satisfying to sculpt.

Many of the students I have worked with have gifted their creations for birthdays and other celebrations and enjoyed the response from the person who received it.
