About the Course

Inspired by the millennia old stone working tradition of the area and with over 20 years personal experience as a stone mason, Antonio has a lot to offer everyone of all levels.

  • Great care will be taken to ensure everyone will know how to use the tools safely and are completely comfortable with them before they begin to work.
  • Tools for stone carving will be provided and natural local stone will be supplied as the material for participants to work on.
  • Antonio speaks English, Italian & German and is happy to provide tuition through those languages.
  • As class sizes are limited please book your preferred dates in advance to avoid disappointment
  • All you need to bring is some solid footwear and a lunch.
  • Tea/Coffee & biscuits will also be included.

The Stone carving courses will be run in Antonio’s own workshop, five minutes drive from Dingle town, Cloosmore. The workshop is located in a lovely old forge building dating from 1900 and was the last functioning forge in the Corca Dhuibhne area. With Antonio’s taking over of the building, it has maintained its character as a centre of craft for well over 100 years.
