Limestone Carving Workshop
Sat 20 April - Sun 21 April$425
During this lively two-day workshop you’ll be guided to produce your own limestone sculpture based on ideas developed from drawings, clay sketches, or a study. Learn to visualise the sculpture within the block and then bring it to life whilst learning about the tools and methods of carving. You’ll also develop your sense of sculptural language. The physical and energetic nature of the carving process means that this workshop is bound to be both challenging and fun for participants. The workshop caters to all levels of artistic experience – from beginners wanting to try something new, to proficient artists.
COST: $350 + $75 materials fee (half block of Limestone), also includes lunch and morning tea.
The What’s On calendar covers arts and heritage events happening across the NSW Central West in the local government areas of Bathurst Region, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Region, Oberon, Orange, Parkes and Weddin.
