Teaching Soapstone Carving for Children

A Teacher's Guide

Bonnie Gosse

Edited for the Press by Jane Lind

THIS TEACHER'S GUIDE is designed to accompany Soapstone Carving for Children—a craft book with a difference! First of all, Soapstone Carving for Children is a family book; second, it combines a history of the craft with the procedures of carving, making the book a high-interest source of enjoyment; and third, it provides sample projects and working drawings for children to develop on their own.

Have a go! Experience the hands-on pleasure of carving soapstone.


Bonnie Gosse

Author, Artist

Bonnie Gosse is an experienced Vancouver teacher and has always been interested in learning and teaching crafts. Soapstone Carving follows on her recent success with Keep it Green, an environmental board game.
