Summer Alabaster Carving with Carol Crawford and Wendy Black
Early Bird: $525.30, Full Fee: $585.30
A special opportunity to immerse yourself and learn from two teachers this January, whilst carving beautiful Italian alabaster stone!
Popular guest teacher Carol Crawford, a specialist alabaster sculptor who works almost exclusively in alabaster and who is known for her soft sensuous forms, will be joined by fellow sculptor, teacher and alabaster carver Wendy Black. Together, they will guide you on the use of different hand tools, and how to realise a beautiful form out of the rough stone you have chosen.
Alabaster is a very fine, stable beautiful stone that can be easily carved, it can be translucent or opaque white, salmon orange, yellow or green or a combination. For this workshop you will be working with beautiful white alabaster (translucent and opaque) shipped all the way from Italy. This is an opportunity to work on a larger piece of alabaster stone than our previous alabaster workshops. Each student will receive a 4 – 5kg piece of stone to work with.
This is a workshop not to be missed! Places are strictly limited and early bookings are encouraged for this popular course.
Fees include one piece of stone, chisels, files and finishing material will be supplied for use during the workshop. Additional stone will be available for purchase.
