Woodcarving Workshop | Emma Senft

Saturday, February 8, 2020 - 2 PM to 4 PM

Admission: $15 / person (Free for La Guilde's members)
Max. 15 participants, 18 years old +

On the occasion of the Prix François-Houdé 2019, come and create a wood sculpture with the artist Emma Senft. During this workshop, the artist will focus on experimentation and play, exploring carving as mark-making to create a variety of contrasting surface textures. She will guide you in the creation of a sculpture designed on a wooden board using carving tools. You will be able to leave with your creation.
