Relief carving is a satisfying and useful skill which has numerous applications for gardens, landscaping, and creative expression. In this 12-hour introductory-level workshop, students will use manageable scraps of limestone and carve them in relief-bring your own idea or utilize teacher references - and in the process learn something of an art form that has graced buildings and monuments from the Assyrians onward. Included will be plenty of stone lore, tips for scrounging up materials and tools for practically nothing, and information about techniques including polishing and finishing. Please note: this workshop does not include instruction in carving letters. Workshop fee includes use of tools and one piece of stone. Additional tools and stone may be available for purchase
