Wet Carved Concrete Workshop with Elder G. Jones


View class option details »

Tennessee based Artist Elder G. Jones brings his knowledge of concrete to CMS for this 2½ day “Wet Carved Concrete” workshop. Carving wet concrete is a method of sculpting that produces a durable piece of art. Artisans used this unique technique and process early last century to make architectural elements. 

This process involves creating a sand and cement mixture that sits in a form until stiff. Students through slicing, carving and scraping shape the slowly hardening material. No power tools or hammer and chisel are required. It is an excellent method for producing sculptural forms that can be used for inlaying 3D mosaic work. Students create a small sculpture or planter about the size of a five-gallon bucket. Each student keeps their (roughly forty pound) sturdy, weather tolerant creation that will be a great addition to any garden or home. Carving tools are provided to participants.

All materials are included. No prerequisite.
