Class Description

This workshop will bring students to a new understanding of working with stone and incorporating it into their designs. This class offers participants the chance to learn the techniques involved for carving and drilling stones at your bench. No large lapidary equipment required! Students will be shown a number of different diamond bits to achieve a variety of designs and textures in your stones and then how to polish those carvings. Ryan will also show students the process for creating laminations as well as his technique for applying metal leaf to the carvings.
