Carve Soapstone in Middlebridge! June 17 and 24

Posted by handson30cutler

Soapstone is among the easiest of stones to carve and offers the satisfying challenge of working in the round. Beginners get grounding in reductive sculpture techniques, yet the beauty of the stone and the finishes that can be achieved appeal to more advanced students as well. Expect to see wonderful, flowing forms emerge while building skills with saws, files, rasps and chisels. Students should come prepared with sketches and printed photographs of a compact animal form they would like to carve, preferred face masks for dust, and personal goggles. Adults only.

Laura Travis Carving presents a two-afternoon session at "the summer studio" in Middlebridge, right off Middlebridge Road. It will be at a special rate of $125 with a $25 materials fee. Because of space, Ionly 4-6 people can attend this workshop. It will be in the yard, rain or shine- under tents, bring your lunch if you want, Cold drinks are at the ready! And the beach at Narragansett is a mile away...for later!

If interested, please reply to before June 10. Accepting checks, Venmo or credit cards; just ask if you need to do something else.
