The Stone Carving Workshop


I wanted to thank you and Celia for the warm welcome and a trip that did not disappoint.  I thoroughly enjoyed all the time in the workshop.  Your calm and infectious passion for the craft, was so inspiring and to pick up the tools on the 2nd day and find that they were less of a strange appendage and that I was actually able to use them was an exciting revelation!  The whole experience was fantastic – from all of Celia’s delicious food, the relaxed atmosphere and not to mention the beautiful setting, it was everything I had hoped it would be.  I would love to attend another of your courses in the future.  In the meantime, many thanks again for a fabulous experience.” Becky

“Thank you both for a brilliant day, I loved the stone carving it was very inspiring, Peter you are extremely talented I loved your work and I will keep a look out for a piece in the RWA this year. Celia thank you for a wonderful lunch, my husband Ian was amazed when I told him about the many courses.” Bryony

“I am sending this email to thank you both for all your efforts in making our stay at Koeschi a delightful, relaxing and sometimes challenging experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the carving experience and thanks to Peter’s expert tuition, (just the right amount of show and tell) and his calm and relaxed manner, we were both able to walk away with a credible carving at the end of the course. Koeschi itself is wonderful house in a fabulous woodland setting which was very quiet and soothing and seemed a million miles away from our hectic lives in London.” Graham and Romaine

“Hi Pete and Celia, Just a note to say thanks for such an enjoyable weekend. Great tuition, good company and superb hospitality in a lovely setting. I absolutely loved learning a new skill and, although hard work, it was actually the most relaxing thing I’ve done for ages. Maybe I’ve found what I want to do when I grow up…….!” Stephen

“Thank you Pete for an incredible day’s stone carving. Your patience and encouragement was much appreciated. Your magical house in the woods is just perfect. Thank you, hubby Stefan for buying me such a lovely birthday present and most of all thank you Celia for a fabulous lunch and birthday cake. How spoiled was I ? I’m thrilled with my day.x” Glynis

“Thanks again for a great day. Peter, special thanks for giving us such close and skilled tuition – we are both really pleased with our time in the studio and what we have brought home with us.  I will definitely recommend your sessions to others! And finally, thank you both for your company and the kind way you welcomed us into your home.” Tim

“Many thanks for looking after us so well. We have loved learning new skills and are very proud to have something concrete to show for our labours!” Paul and Mike

“The course was really great. Just wanted to say thank you again and congratulations for being so clear and giving us such confidence. I am going to do more! Thanks again – my wife couldn’t believe the product was by me.”   Andrew
