SLATE INSCRIPTION CUTTING

This class will introduce the student to the use of a mallet and chisel to carve V-cut letters or designs into slate in the style of ancient classical inscription cutting. Students will practice the basics of cutting straight lines, curves and how to join the two in creating letters and designs. Instruction will be given on how to select mallets and chisels and how to transfer your personal designs onto slate prior to carving. Mallets and 10 mm chisels will be provided but they will also be available for purchase for students to take home if they so desire. Students will have a choice of an 8”x10” or random size piece of slate to work for their final project. Everyone will take home a slate that they have carved. I will display my own finished cut inscriptions for use as reference in the classroom.
