Bay Carving

Reviewed By lcj1031 - Auckland, New Zealand

My husband took part in a bone carving course as part of a larger group and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. He really fancied trying something different as part of a holiday and said that Roland was an excellent teacher and fostered a good environment that was fun and educational...with the added bonus that he came away with something he’d made too! All for a really fair price. The items for sale in the shop were also pretty amazing and well worth a look.
