Qulliq Carving Class will be held over Zoom with three 2-hour sessions.
May 5: 6:00pm-8:00-pm
May 8: 10:00am - 12:00pm
May 9: - 10:00am- 12:00pm
Each student will receive a package with one soapstone block, 1 file, 1 curved rasp, three grits of sand paper (80, 120, 220), a stick for lamp tending and directions for the class.
A qulliq is a seal oil lamp that was used by the Indigenous of the north. This class will learn the history and function of the qulliq, they will learn to carve soapstone using hand tools and design their own qulliq. The last day of class is dedicated to learning how to light their qulliq using household items.
Quyana to the supporters and funding agencies for allowing me to offer this class at a lower rate.
