Stone Carving Workshop with Karen Terhune
May 8, 2021 • 10:00 AM
3355 Lawrenceburg Rd$150
The workshop will teach the “hand method” of stone carving, without the use of any power tools. Students will be taught about both direct and indirect carving. Students will be instructed how to choose a stone for their project, how to start the carving process, and the order that the chisels are used while carving. The workshop will cover rough carving, refining the forms, smoothing and polishing the forms, when to use texture as well as determining the appropriate texture for the sculpture. The goal for the class is that each student will have a finished piece by the end of the fourth class. However, completion of the sculpture depends on the student and how quickly they move through each step of the process.
