This workshop will focus on direct carving and three dimensional thinking, finding the shape you imagine and carving it out. Participants will get experience with a variety of tools for shaping a piece of alabaster, learning the whole process from the basic chisels to the end result including polishing and final textures. There will be class demonstrations every day and discussions about the particular techniques, imagery and tools.
Alabaster is easy to carve and stunning in its beauty and colors. This course is intended for students on multiple levels as each person will build on their individual skills for making a sculpture. Individual instruction will accommodate all levels of experience.
