Sculpture in a Day: Soapstone Carving with Karen Alexander

Sun 18 February

Create a small finished soapstone sculpture in this one day workshop. Soapstone is a soft easily carved stone with beautiful patterns and available in a variety of colours. You will be shown how to use rasps and files to reveal the hidden organic shapes and forms within. The final polishing is always a wonderful surprise as that reveals the beautiful colours and texture hidden within the stone.
