Hands-On at Noguchi: Carving Stone with Artist Charlie Kaplan

Saturday, January 28, 2017 - 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Noguchi wrote, “Stone itself is a symbol of the natural world and the sculptor’s engagement with stone is a metaphor for human existence.” Noguchi was fascinated with the historical and modern techniques of working with stone. Contemporary sculptor Charlie Kaplan leads this workshop, bringing his decades long experience as a stone carver. Participants will join Kaplan in the galleries, discussing Noguchi’s materials and processes, and then learn introductory hand carving techniques for creating their own stone sculptures in the studio.
