Taught by Michael Updike and using recycled slate roof shingles, etch a design of your choice: a fossil, dragonfly, or sailboat are possibilities. Bring ideas, photos, and sketches for inspiration. The design will start as a ghost image, as you make a line drawing with a white charcoal pencil. Then transition to a chisel and a small wooden mallet to achieve an outline and add depth to the image. Explore this unique process for turning discarded shingles into art.
