through three separate workstations.
The number of carvers and the total time available
determines the length of each activity.
1 Free Carving
Students grades 3 and up practice carving on scrap
stone. These stones will be recycled for use at
other workshops therefore participants will not
get to keep the work produced at this station.
This activity is primarily an opportunity for
students to become comfortable with the tools
and to emphasize the importance of patience, control
2 Project Carving
The finished project can be installed inside or
out as a part of a construction project or as
a stand-alone landscape feature. Prior thought
needs to be given to the final placement of the
piece as the design is developed.
3 Necklace Making
Necklaces are crafted from pieces of limestone
that are chipped off the project stone. They are
designed as keepsakes so that each participant
will have something to remember the experience.
Due to time constraints, this station often requires
the assistance of adult or older youth volunteers
to keep things moving smoothly.
