In this 2 day workshop students will work with sculptor, Michael Irwin to discover how to carve limestone and finish at least one carving in fabulous Oamaru stone.
During this workshop you will learn to design a 2 dimensional sculpture, cut stone safely and confidently, use a variety of saws, rasps, rifflers and chisel, and develop surface and finishing techniques. At the end of the 2 days you will mount and seal your sculpture creating a long lasting artwork.
NOTE: This course is held outside so please dress according to the weather - don’t forget to bring sunscreen and sunhat, morning tea, lunch and plenty of water!
Carving stone and using tools can be rough on the hands. We recommend all students have a pair of riggers gloves or similar. (They usually priced around $10 from most hardware places)
To protect clothing wear old long sleeve shirt or overalls. Dust masks will be provided.
