The creative workshop “Antler Animals”
Deer antler is one of the most amazing materials. In the nature school’s workshop we will search through the boxes of odds and ends to find just the piece of antler that inspires you to carve it into an animal. Then it’s just up to your imagination; should the animal have 2 or 4 legs, or will it be a snake with no legs at all? The animals can be painted and decorated with many different materials. You could use leather, fur, shells, beads, teeth - just let your imagination run free.
The creative workshop “ Soapstone”
Soapstone is a fantastic material that is easy to work with. Historically it has been used to make household items such as pots and oil lamps, but it has also been used to make many different figurines and other carvings. Inspired by Børge Hinsch’s soapstone figurines and tupilaks from Greenland, we will rasp, file, grind, smooth and polish away to produce our own soapstone figurine.
