Pick up an art kit designed for adults and unwind with Art at Home! Join instructor Hayden Haynes (Onödowa’ga:’ – Deer Clan) for an after-work, social, guided art project to learn how to shape and finish steatite (soapstone). In this two-part virtual carving workshop for beginners, you’ll be guided through creating your own carved object with a choice to make a bear or a representation of an old Hodinöhsö:ni’ non-functional clay pipe/bowl. Hayden will be available to answer questions with opportunities to converse and engage with other participants throughout the creative process.

We’ll provide the materials, you bring your beverage of choice and come prepared to create! After you register, be sure to pick up your At At Home kit before the event.

Session 1 on April 20: Participants will learn the basics of carving by using small files to carve and shape their steatite form.

Session 2 on May 4: This session will focus on the fundamentals of fine sanding your carved work and applying a gloss finish to give it a wonderful shine that will bring your creation to life.

*This program is intended for adults
