Nordic Craft Workshop: Rune Carving in Stone with Janey Westin

Saturday, August 24, 2019 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

Ready to leave your mark? This one-day class will introduce you to the fundamentals of carving in stone with a chisel and mallet, using a Norse runic alphabet to inscribe an important name or word in your life.

In the Viking era, rune stones were used to document everyday business, prayers, memorials, love notes and even secret messages! Your project will be slightly less massive (but we’re not saying any less impressive!). We’ll work with a small limestone block with space for a handful of letters.

This course will introduce tools and materials, layout, runic alphabets and basic carving techniques, with all tools and materials provided. Suitable for ages 15 and up.

Weather permitting, this course will be taught outside with provided shade and requires some hand strength.

An additional $40 materials fee is payable to the instructor.

Registration recommended by August 16
$85 ASI members / $95 non-members
