Summer workshop "Introduction to Stone Sculpture"
2 – 6 August 2021
This course is an introduction to stone sculpture.
The aim of the course is to introduce (the) participants to the basic techniques of stone sculpture through practical work on the stone. It is about choosing the right stone, working with the natural form of it, by then forming your own sculpture.
We will each work on a piece of steatite, which the participants will take home at the end of the course. We will also make some observations and drawings to connect with the stone and as a support to developing the shape for our own sculpture. Tools and a piece of stone will be provided to each participant during the course.
