Akio Makigawa is best-known for his contemplative Zen-like sculptures constructed from elemental materials, including stone. Learn how to carve from limestone over a glass of wine with Melbourne artist, Noriko Nakamura.
The class will include instruction on how to sketch your sculpture, a demonstration of how to use carving tools, finishing with the opportunity to carve and and sand your own limestone sculpture artwork.
All skill levels welcome.
