SSJ Stone Carving Workshops 2019

Finding Form: Creations from Sculpture Saint John Stone Carving Workshops

In the summer of 2018, Saint John Arts Centre had the wonderful opportunity to partner once again with Sculpture Saint John to offer workshops to the public during the International Sculpture Symposium.

With the assistance of generous funding by the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation and Canaport LNG, SJAC presented a series of hands-on workshops introducing stone carving in alabaster with Ken Waiwood of the Chamcook Stoners stone carving group. Some of the incredible results of these classes are showcased in this exhibit, created by members of the community, many of whom were sculpting for the first time and ‘discovering’ the works within the stone.x
