Farm to Table/Stone to Wall
Carving Workshop at the Dry Stone Canada Festival on Amherst Island – SOLD OUT
As part of the festival we’ll hold a beginner/intermediate carving workshop. The workshop will be led by Danny Barber (Smith & Barber). Danny is a well respected carver and is based in Ottawa.
Learn how to carve ornamental details in limestone using traditional hand tools and methods. Students work at their own pace on a project set out and lead by the instructor using templates and models. Tools and materials are provided.
Banker tables will be outside under trees for shade and will move to a large work shed on the farm if the weather requires.
