Chase away the winter blues with ancient art of stone carving

March 14 – 15 — WEST RUTLAND — The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center has limited openings in Introductory Stone Carving with Bill Nutt scheduled for the weekend of March 14-15.

Two full days of carving technique, using hand and power tools, introduce the beginner to visualizing a three-dimensional form in stone. Use of CSSC tools and a moderate piece of Vermont marble are included in the fee. Discussions of safe studio practices and stone and tool sourcing help make this two-day course an excellent initiation to the craft of stone sculpture.

Bill Nutt, a full-time professional sculptor, works almost exclusively in stone. His carving is quite varied, ranging from detailed representational sculpture, to totally abstract pieces, to traditional lettering. He has taught introductory, advanced and college stone carving courses. With a background in geology and engineering (mostly aerospace), he brings an unusual perspective to the sculptural arts.
