Have you had a lot of enquiries?
How have you been marketing it?
I ask because I am setting up stone carving workshops in the Midlands

im still working on the marketing, i have brought an Add on a website for art holidays but, i think so far most of my responces have come direct from my web site.

it was just a 2 day course, we did sand casting in pewter, then a life cast of thumbs, then lost wax cast of those thumbs in pewter , and finaly a bronze cast into sand. it all went realy well especilay as id never actually cast bronze into sand! lol, so i was very pleased when every one opened ther molds and found some bronze inside!

Hey that looks interesting, thanks for posting it. I'm goin to set up the same kind of thing here in Nana Glen (Australia). I might have some questions for you.

ok no problem , got the 2nd courses this w/e.
Hi Jeramie - where abouts in Australia are you? I don't recognise 'Nana Glen', so I guess you're not in Victoria. If you were I'd be interested in participating. [ps this is my 1st 'post' ever, anywhere, so hope I'm doing it right!]

I have now set-up and started running my own stone carving courses. It's been a huge learning curve and I have had to move location which turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
Its very gratifying to run these courses for all involved. Great fun and a socialable event for such a normally solitary vocation.
if anyone is interested in seeing what i set up feel free to ask any questions or pass on advice - especially about how to get the courses known.
