Carving Programs for Schools
The creative energies of your students
Our in-depth carving program results in full 3D stone sculptures, hands-on learning, and boosts the creative confidence and imagination of students from kindergarten to grade 8.
A rich learning opportunity
Carving is much more that a fun activity. Students learn about sculpting, rocks and minerals, nature, and more. And their carving, which they can take home, will enrich the learning experience.

Whether at home or in the classroom, your students can discover the delights of carving. Our step-by-step training video is ideal for classroom and online student learning. And our instructors can also visit your school and lead carving sessions.
For home or classroom learning
Our soapstone carving kits include everything your students will need to create a soapstone keepsake. Our kits include soapstone slab, file, sandpapers, polishing cloth, wax, and access to a training video—to ensure your students have fun while learning.

What Teachers Say
Loved the workshop! My students had such a good time and were so proud of their creations. I loved that every stone was unique and the students got to compare and see one another’s and pick out the details.
