COMPETITION: Win tickets to try your skills at stone carving

Ever wondered what it would be like to take up a mallet and chisel and create something in stone?

Well here is your chance- Punchline is offering two lucky readers the opportunity to learn all about the fascinating art of stone carving.

We have teamed up with Cat's Eye Carving at Taurus Crafts, Lydney to offer two free tickets to get involved in this intriguing activity for an hour using limestone from Tetbury.

Cat's Eye Carving was set up 12 years ago by Caroline Horwood. She had previously completed an apprenticeship in stonemasonry at Gloucester Cathedral and then worked for two companies designing and carving a wide selection of architectural stonemasonry and memorials.

Her business derives it's name from her stonemason mark - the Cat's Eye - and her skills include the creation of beautiful sculptures, exact copy portraits of both animals and people and a variety of letter cutting using calligraphy styles.

To enter our competition just answer this question - Where does the limestone used at Cat's Eye Carving come from?

A. Quedgeley

B. Tetbury

C. Dursley

Send you answer to by 5pm on July 25 with your name and contact telephone number.
