Stone Carving Workshops

Not only you can see the beautiful stone artwork from Zimbabwe at Denver Botanic Gardens, the Gardens and Chapungu offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study and work with Chapungu’s master stone sculptors from Zimbabwe, some of whom are considered to be among the world’s greatest living sculptors. In this workshop you will be provided with your own stone-carving tools, and will receive training from two on-site Chapungu artists who will help you create your own sculptural masterpiece. Lunch each day will be on your own, and bring your own snacks. The workshops will be held outside, either under a tent or under trees, depending on the weather and space, so dress for the weather. All workshops are held Tuesday –Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call Shirley at 720.865.3580 to register.
Today was the third day Anna Russo was working with her stone (opal) and forming it to a beautiful face.
