Workshops offer an intensive, hands-on sculpture making experience in a variety of media including stone, wood, metal and more See the Studio.



Participants from varied backgrounds, a wide range of ages and often very different aesthetic sensibilities join in an exchange of ideas and camaraderie. Challenges in personal work encountered during the day are eased in the relaxed communal environment. Presentations of work by instructors, artists in residence, interns and participants enrich the experience.

The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center partners with many area businesses to offer a range of accommodations including private homes, area campgrounds, Bed & Breakfast establishments as well as hotels and motels. Bicycles are available for transportation and/or recreational use by participants.There is a break in the middle of the day offering participants an opportunity to enjoy the scenic beauty of Vermont including the local quarries and surrounding marsh, home to many protected species.

Don’t let finances get in the way of taking an inspiring workshop. To apply for a scholarship or fellowship, please submit up to 10 images (slides or jpegs) of your work, resume/biography, and a statement of how this will impact your development as an artist and evidence of financial need by April 24th. Recipients will be advised by May 4th.

Scholarships are a unique and supportive way of commemorating contributors to arts education. TheVinnie Ream Scholarship commemorates the achievements of women sculptors in the U.S. The Nina and Anthony D’Amore Memorial Scholarship for mature and/or minority sculptors was established by the family of B. Amore, Founder, in honor of their parents who were lifetime supporters of the Arts.

After taking a workshop with a local teen, Gordon initiated the annual Gordon and Louise Marshall Scholarship for area youth to benefit from hands-on workshops at the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center. Other educational support for youth include the Vermont Country Store, Hills and Hollow Fund and VELCO Scholarships.

Memorial scholarships honor the sculptural legacies of Steven J. Mestyan, Mathieu Poster, Bob Sindorf and Patrick Farrow. The David Sterling, Jayne and Daniel Pratt and Trow and HoldenScholarships are available for students in financial need.
