I learnt about the different tools used to cut and texture limestone. Jenny help me touch up my design to create a 3D Bear and showed me a lot of tips and tricks to make to sculpting go smoothly. She was kind and patient and provided everyone with a list of tools and places they could be found.
A well-paced relaxing and stimulating workshop where you are taught the basic skills and use of equipment, and then given ideas to enhance your work throughout the day. Highly recommend this workshop!
