We will cover tools of the trade and basic geology: how to choose suitable stone and inspect raw material. Students are introduced to the principles of sculpture and will finish the class with basic proficiency in stone carving and possibly a finished piece in soapstone or alabaster. The instructor provides tools: rasps, files, sandpaper, wax, safety goggles and dust masks.
