Whether you are picking up your first chunk of soapstone or have been carving for years, this class is for anyone who has looked at a stone and wondered what might lie underneath. Using rasps and rifflers, sandpaper and sealer, a little elbow grease and a lot of imagination, we will create magic from soapstone, alabaster and wonderstone. All levels are welcome – those new to this old art as well as old hands looking for new ideas.
To make the most use of daylight, classes meet mornings and afternoons.
Please note: Rooms with private and semi-private baths are completely full this week- there is plenty of space in other lodging options.
For over 3 decades, Ghost Ranch has dedicated a week(s) of the summer to celebrating and nurturing the Arts. It is a Festival, because of the spirit of creativity and learning that takes place among the participants and instructors. This workshop and others this week showcase a wide array of media and disciplines and allow people of all levels to explore an exciting area of art. Talented instructors are selected who appreciate the process more than the end product. Have no fear, come and develop the artist within you!
