Details of courses I run across the South West are on the News page.

I run courses seven days a week here at Bodden Cross Studio. Details are as follows:


£130 per day or £70 for half a day, per person.


At your convenience. The Studio operates seven days a week and we will work to suit your availability. Please get in touch either using the form below or email directly to


The full experience day is from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm, with a break for lunch.

Half days are either from 10.00 am to 1:00 pm, or 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

Who For


What can you achieve?

We are all different and work at different speeds, but typically in half a day you can expect to finish a small bowl for your peanuts, or a bigger bowl in a whole day.

If you are sign carving then to prepare, layout and carve a Roman Numeral plaque of five numerals can take half a day. More letters will take longer and you should plan on a full day for signs of more than five letters (allow 30 minutes per letter).

Other projects: get in touch and we can talk it through. Almost anything is possible... although we never did try the rocket-powered Go Kart requested by one participant.

Participant Guidelines

Children over the age of 14 are welcome but anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. While we love our dogs, Millie and Milo are very jealous of their Studio so no guest dogs please (Or cats... M & M).

Numbers on the Day

There are a maximum of two participants on the day. If you wish to bring a friend to watch you are most welcome, but please let me know in advance.


Please bring your own packed lunch on the day. There is tea and coffee available all day included in the price.

What's included

You will be supplied with appropriate safety gear on the day. The timber for your first bowl or sign is included - all locally sourced from responsible accredited suppliers.  

What to wear

Please wear clothes and footwear that you won't mind getting covered in shavings and you can be comfortable standing in all day. No open-toed sandals or flip flops please.


We have off road parking for you in the yard. Just drive in and find a suitable spot.
