The gallery will also be open to visitors on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Brain Ansell's work has a timeless quality because he uses the same traditional direct carving techniques as the ancient and traditional stone masons. continuing to carve with the same tools that he began his trade with forty-five years ago, he is able to work without modern conveniences such as electricity.
