Stone Carving Workshop

2 Classes | October 17 + 24 at the Keene Valley Library | Ages 9-15 

Instructor:  Barbara Tam

Carving with hand tools in soapstone and alabaster is a wonderful creative process that anyone can master.  We will create abstract forms, small figurines, pocket stones, and amulets.   No experience with stone is necessary.  Stone, all tools, and jewelry findings are provided.  Come try a new art process and take home some beautiful work.

$15 materials fee

Min. 6, Max. 12


Barbara Tam has taught visual arts to students from kindergarten through high school in both private and public schools for more than 35 years.  She loves being with young artists dreaming big about their creative ideas and working to make those ideas real.  The natural world and its mysteries and intrigues is the focus of Barbara’s own explorative work, primarily in clay, paper, and fiber.
