River Arts in Damariscotta is again offering its popular, summer stone carving workshops taught by Andy Serferlis. Students can participate in either weeklong workshop or both! Week I will be July 30-Aug 3 and Week II August 6- 10. Workshop hours are 10-2pm. The workshops are for beginners, or practiced hands. Bring your own stone or let us know if you need one. Limestone can be provided at cost. Sizes and shapes will vary. If you have tools, bring them. Tools will be provided if you don’t own them: chisels, hammers, power tools, angle grinders, extension cords, small compressors. Bring a pencil, notebook, charcoal, gloves, safety glasses, dust masks, all available at your local hardware. Stone carving is addictive and very satisfying.
