Students will be introduced to soapstone as an easy-to-carve artistic material. We will learn about soapstone’s origins, uses and properties, proper use of tools and safety practices. During the class, each student will use rasps and sandpaper to carve and polish one or two small pieces that may be pendants or small sculptures. Students will keep their pieces and take home a new artistic skill. Snacks and drinks are included as well as all necessary supplies.
