Tuition: $625* | Material Fee: $45 for stone and carving tools
Alabaster stone has two dominant traits, translucency and compactness. Translucency provides the stone’s beauty while compactness offers softness. These combined make the material attractive to use for both beginner and advanced stone carvers. Beginning students will use hand tools to form a mortar and pestle while more experienced will practice techniques from the traditional to abstract where pneumatic tools may be employed.
