Individual instruction will guide you in developing your concept, choosing a stone, techniques of carving using a wide variety of tools, and refining the finished form. Demonstrations will include the use of a broad range of tools including hand tools, pneumatic tools, core drilling, stone sawing, and electric tools both wet and dry. During the week we will discuss splitting the stone, shaping, abrasive machining, and textured and polished finishes to achieve your desired results. Class includes up to 160# of stone, primarily marble from the CSSC collection, or you can bring your own project. All levels of skill are encouraged.  Enrollment will be limited to six participants to allow for the specific needs of each participant.
