Slate Carving Demonstrations with Jon Doody
August 5, 2017 @ 10:00 am - August 6, 2017 @ 4:00 pm
Maine Stone Workers Guild member Jon Doody will be visiting the Museum to share his love of stone carving on Saturdays and Sundays, August 5, 6, 19 & 20 as part of the Maine Coast Stone Symposium. You’ll find him near the 1847 Boothbay Town Hall and the Spruce Point Chapel between 10 – 4 on each date.
Doody started with wood carving and now prefers carving stone especially reclaimed stone from fireplace mantels, foundations, and other utilitarian applications. In one large marble piece reclaimed from a renovation of the State House in Augusta, Doody has begun carving a message welcoming new Mainers in a number of different languages. He enjoys the creativity and challenge of working with a wide variety of materials from slate to granite.
Maine Coast Stone Symposium is made possible with the generous support of our partners:
