Burngate Stone Carving Centre, in the Isle of Purbeck, Dorset and on the world famous Jurassic Coast, provides traditional stone carving skills for people of all ages (6+) and abilities.
Our Have-A-Go courses run for 2 hours and includes stone which you can take away with you. Visit the Centre’s exhibition of sculpture of art and craft by established and emerging local artists or just join us for a cup of tea and cake. We also encourage visits from schools, colleges, corporate groups and celebration parties.
Burngate’s location is an inspiration in itself; look out east over Swanage Bay to the Isle of Wight, look north to Nine Barrow and Ballard Downs. The surrounding landscape – fields, old quarry workings and cliffs above the English Channel are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
We have various events and activities running throughout the year, check our website or Facebook page for more details and to book your course. Burngate recently worked with The Swanage School to provide the Sealife Project in conjunction with stone carver Carlotta Barrow, the pupils produced a wall of panels designed and created by them and are now proudly in place in Swanage.
