Anna is passionate about carving Celtic knots into sandstone using traditional techniques, and stone carving tools as taught to her by an Italian master carver and mason. The interconnected lines weave a pattern of infinity, eternity and unity that creates a meditative effect while carving.
During this two day workshop you will learn the art of stone carving transferring a Celtic design onto stone. You will gain experience utilising a range of chisels to create depth and dimension. This unique method of carving is ideal for those interested in exploring the art of carving while simultaneously stilling the mind to relax as the lines weave an interrelated pattern of peace.
Classes between 8 - 12 people (minimum 8 people required)
Anna is an experienced teacher, carver and sculptor and believes that everyone can be an artist if provided with the appropriate techniques and tools to surrender to the creative flow. She is committed to allow students to achieve a love of art and a trust in their own ability to create from their own unique perspective. Anna has exhibited extensively and has been a member of the Australia Sculptors Society for many years.
My deep passion is exploring the expression of beauty in form and line through carving Celtic knots in stone and exploring symbolic and sacred art.
I agree with Brancusi: "Working on the stone, in the stone, I came upon spirit hidden in matter, the forbidden measure of its fathomless being".
