The area's first and only dedicated year-round stone carving studio!
Stone carving is an ancient activity where pieces of rough natural stone are shaped by the controlled removal of stone. Owing to the permanence of the material, evidence can be found that even the earliest societies indulged in some form of stone work. -Wikipedia
'Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.'

Stone Carving Saturdays
In this popular one-day workshop, you'll have the opportunity to carve your own stone, an art form that is not typically accessible. For beginners and experienced sculptors alike, you'll be guided through the process of looking into the rock for imagery, carving into material, planning and forming a sculpture, and using tools. Hand-carving techniques will be demonstrated, and stone carving lore will be discussed. We'll also touch upon safety in the studio, and stone and tool sourcing. You will leave with your stone sculpture in hand. Please bring a bag lunch to class. All materials will be provided.
