Carve a Soapstone Pendant

Level: Beginner
Medium: Carving
Ages: 6+

Soapstone is a beautiful, soft material - and the final colors will only be revealed after you have shaped and polished your masterpiece!

For ages 6 and up - you will start with a cut blank (either heart or leaf shape) with the hole already drilled.

We will use sand paper to shape the pendant, add surface designs if you wish, then wax the pendant to reveal its beautiful colours.

Location: FortyOne: Local Art Market, 41 Victoria Street East, Alliston

All three artists; Shelly, Emma & Connor love to create in diverse media - but our subjects are almost always animals and the world we share.

Wild creatures that share our fragile environment, farm friends and companion animals, we are inspired by the creatures around us

Shelly creates small scale and miniature pieces in digital media, rich coloured pencils, delicate inks, or scratchboard.
Emma creates beautiful whimsical acrylics, inks and watercolours
And Connor creates large scale murals in spray paints, lush oils on canvas and bold inks.

Custom projects are always welcome - we would love to discuss your creative vision!
