Workshops offer an intensive, hands-on sculpture making experience. Financial aid is available.
Participants from varied backgrounds, a wide range of ages and often very different aesthetic sensibilities join in an exchange of ideas and camaraderie. Challenges in personal work encountered during the day are eased in the relaxed communal environment. Presentations of work by instructors, artists in residence, interns and participants enrich the experience.
The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center partners with many area businesses to offer a range of accommodations including private homes, area campgrounds, Bed & Breakfast establishments as well as hotels and motels. Bicycles are available for transportation and/or recreational use by participants.There is a break in the middle of the day offering participants an opportunity to enjoy the scenic beauty of Vermont including the local quarries and surrounding marsh, home to many protected species.
