Limestone is a beautiful, even-grained off white stone that provides a great "blank canvas" for your design. Relief carving is a satisfying and useful skill which has numerous applications for gardens, landscaping, and creative expression. In this 12-hour introductory-level workshop, students will use manageable scraps of limestone and carve them in relief-bring your own idea or utilize teacher references - and in the process learn something of an art form that has graced buildings and monuments from the Assyrians onward. Included will be plenty of stone lore, tips for scrounging up materials and tools for practically nothing, and information about techniques including polishing and finishing. Please note: this workshop does not include instruction in carving letters. Workshop fee includes use of tools and one piece of stone. Addtional tools and stone may be available for purchase.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the workshop?

Anyone over age 14 may register for this workshop. IDs are required if a check is involved for any payments.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the workshop?

RIPTA bus from Newport or Providence stops three blocks away on Main St. There is ample on-street parking right near the door. Look for the tower in the second mill down Cutler Street; it says "30 Cutler". There is one flight of stairs. The studio is on the right, second door from the top of the stairs.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please e mail any questions at celticinfluence@gmail.com or call 401-792-7149

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

The cancellation policy is one week in advance of the date for paid registration. Prior to that there will be a refund minus a processing fee of $20. After that, your registration may be transferred to a class by Laura Travis Carving at a future time. Some classes may be at a different location.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Bring your lunch- I have a nice spot to sit and relax right in the studio. Or, you can head to one of several options to grab a sandwich or coffee within a short walk. I have ALL the tools you need, and will provide information for you to be able to purchase on your own. You should wear comfortable clothes that might get a bit dusty, and closed shoes. You need to bring a pair of goggles that you can wear for eye protection.
