Soap Carving

Soap Carving

Soap relief carving, a traditional method of creating three dimensional form in soap, spans all cultures and time periods. Come and see all of the amazing ways that craftspeople have carved and shaped forms to create models for churches, temples, architecture and more.

In this introductory session, participants will learn about various tools and species of soap available for carving a relief sculpture. The class will also consist of examples of carving, a demonstration of tools and tool safety, brainstorming for ideas for a relief sculpture in wood and stone, and a short period of working. Participants will leave the class with a work in progress, with the ability to continue it on their own.

Modeling Clay

Modeling Clay

The workshop starts with an explanation and demonstration of how to create a prototype from modeling clay using fruits as a model. Jump in and learn to get the information of shape, contour, and proportion by looking and measuring and then use your hands and clay tools to recreate the fruit . We will work from the general to the specific, from overall form to create surface details and textures and learn how to use them to maximize the feeling of volume and gravity.
