In these workshops you will be working with blocks of natural Maltese limestone, and will be given enough guidance through the process of stone carving to complete a small sculpture.
Stone carving workshops will cover:
Discussion of preliminary ideas - if you have ideas of what you would like to carve do bring these with you, equally it is fine if you would like to wait and see what the stone suggests!
Demonstration of stone carving techniques and use of hand tools - mallets, chisels, rasps & sandpaper.
Working on own piece with one-to-one guidance at every stage, from 'roughing out' the basic three-dimensional form to completion.
Advice on finishing the surface of the stone.
