Students will hand mix sand and cement, place it in a form and begin carving their piece while it is still soft. While carving, the mix continues to set as the piece is refined to completion. No power tools are used and the instructor brings custom hand tools for the group to share. Each participant will make either a small sculpture or planter of about 40 pounds. More info
