HopArts stone carver Laura Travis just returned from a trip to London to study some of her favorite Celtic art objects at a spectacular show at the British Museum “Celts: Art and Identity”. She funded the trip with a successful Kickstarter! and is eager to get back into the studio to get busy on a new body of work in stone sculpture to reflect all that new inspiration!

Relief Carving in Limestone Workshop
February 20 and 21
9:30 am to 4 pm (with lunch break)
Relief carving is a satisfying and useful skill which has numerous applications for gardens, landscaping, and creative expression. In this 12-hour introductory-level workshop, students will use manageable scraps of limestone and carve them in relief-bring your own idea or utilize teacher references – and in the process learn something of an art form that has graced buildings and monuments from the Assyrians onward. Please note: this workshop does not include instruction in carving letters. Workshop fee includes use of tools and one piece of stone. Addtional tools and stone may be available for purchase
