The Workshops


Are you a beginner?
  • Workshop 1 is an initiation to direct carving sculpture. You will have the opportunity to work a piece of soft wood (linden) and learn its grain. You will create a small project in relief (two dimensions).
  • Inspired by the artist's own work, you will explore the themes of the child or young adult.
Are you an experienced sculptor?
  • Workshop 2 will allow you carry out a larger direct carving sculpture. You can choose to work in the round (three dimensions) to create a bust, a full figure or a more stylized sculpture in a small format.
  • Inspired by the artist's own work, you will explore the themes of the child or young adult.
  • Nested in a charming woodland and located in the artist's home, the studio, which is also a gallery, bathes in calm and invitation concentration.

 

Creative Materials Provided

  • The raw material (linden or white walnut)
  • Nicole will lend chisels (gouges) to beginners without tools.
  • Experienced sculptors with their own chisels should bring them and we will sharpen them as needed.

What Should You Bring?

  • If you wish to work with your tools, 3 or 4 chisels (gouges).
  • You can also buy chisels at Home Hardware in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, Omer Dessers in Québec City or Langevin et Forest in Montréal.
  • You must have closed shoes, preferably with steel toes.

Prerequisites

  • The desire to learn
