Sculpture SJ 2020: Intro to Soapstone Carving

Sculpture Saint John workshops are back for 2020! This workshop offers some theory of sculpture and an examination of different sculpting techniques. The objective of the workshop is to complete your own stone sculpture from concept to final presentation in an easy step-by-step process! Students will be taught to develop a feel for the stone and how to use a rasp, file, handsaw and sandpaper. Class size is limited to eight students so there is lots on one-on-one instruction with your teacher, Charles Clark.
