Italy comes to Erskineville!

You will learn to use traditional hand-tools and techniques for carving, including methods of transferring ideas onto a piece of marble and finding form within the stone. The aim of this carving workshop is to complete a carved sculpture and return home with a finished piece. Participants will work directly on the famous White Statuario Marble from Carrara to acquire basic skills and to understand the nature of the material.

Sculpture in a Day: Soapstone Carving with Karen Alexander

Sun 28 October

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.

$175 or book with a friend $320 ($160 each)

9:30 AM – 4:30 PM


$175.30* – $320.30
