Sat 30 May-Sun 31 May 2020: WEEKEND STONE CARVING WORKSHOPS with artist Catherine Binnie POSTPONED
This event is in the past.
Two days- £170
10am - 4pm
30th, 31st May
On these two-day workshops you will be working with blocks of natural Maltese limestone, and will be given enough guidance through the process of stone carving to complete a small sculpture. A good lunch is included!
Stone carving workshops will cover:
Discussion of preliminary ideas - if you have ideas of what you would like to carve do bring these with you, equally it is fine if you would like to wait and see what the stone suggests!
Demonstration of stone carving techniques and use of hand tools - mallets, chisels, rasps & sandpaper.
Working on own piece with one-to-one guidance at every stage, from 'roughing out' the basic three-dimensional form to completion.
Advice on finishing the surface of the stone.
A good lunch (weekend workshops) and refreshments included.
No experience necessary.
A block of beautiful Maltese limestone & use of tools included (further blocks available at cost price) Eye protection, dust masks and gloves provided, if wanted.
Dusty! - work clothes recommended.
