Finding your Spirit in Stone Retreat with Sculptor Cat Quintinilla
February 15 @ 11:00 am - February 22 @ 5:00 pm
“Finding My Spirit in Stone” immersion stone carving retreat in Mexico with The Cat. All gentle hand carving of smaller personal statuettes in creamy dreamy softer stones like Brazilian soapstone.
Feb. 15-22 2017. Learn to work softer stone with hand files, sand papers and simple tools to create small objects of significance to you… As simple as a human heart icon or a Venus if you want!
Mornings filled with laughter and a communal class learning and carving together with afternoons with optional aqua exercise sessions, open studio time, meditation and more. Evenings are for free time, sight seeing or dining out as desired. We provide airport transportation. Retreat starts off with a welcome dinner and ends with our very own in house “Casa Alejandra Art Show” to share our art and experiences.
Elements of the carving retreat workshop include topics on:
*How to choose carving stones that best suit you and where to get them.
*3-D visualization with sketchbook to stone markup process
*Gentle, hand carving techniques for lifetime carving
*Finishing and presentation techniques and tips
This retreat is designed for any level carver including those new to stone as well as my more experienced amigos that want a shared experience in beautiful Puerto Vallarta Mexico.
