Soapstone carving is a therapeutic art form and with time and practice, the possibilities are endless. In this two day introduction course Charles will cover safety, skills, techniques, and tips and tricks on how to take a piece of grey rock, and turn it into a polished sculpture, showing its natural beauty and colours. Participants will learn the basic skills to carve this soft stone, and take home from the workshop a set of their very own handheld tools. Each participant will leave with a polished piece to be proudly displayed in any home.

MATERIAL COST: $ 71.00 to be paid to the instructor on the day of the Workshop.
