Carving Workshop at the Dry Stone Canada Festival on Amherst Island
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 under a large tent if the weather requires.
