The Marlborough Arts Center announces a one-day, three-hour workshop to be held on Saturday, May 6th, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The subject will be Rock Carving. All materials will be covered in the $60 class fee. This class is offered to adults and teenagers.

Instructor Susan Hourihan, a new resident of Marlborough and an experienced high school teacher, says that rock carving is a therapeutic process with beautiful, creative results. She has been teaching soapstone rock carving for the past eight years.

Ms. Hourihan’s training is in photography (both darkroom and digital), but she has recently added other media. She is an acrylic landscape painter who has shown her work at the Scranton Public Library and the Madison Art Society. Some of her soapstone carvings are currently on display the Marlborough Arts Center.

A class registration form can be downloaded here and mailed with a check for $60 to the Marlborough Arts Center, 231 North Main Street, Marlborough, CT 06447.
