Inuit Carving

Inuit Carving and Inuit People 

The children first had a look at Inuit carvings in soapstone. They then plane which Arctic animal they would like to create in their own block of soap. After sketching the design they set to work using an array of tools to scrape, dig and smooth out their design.

Following this the children transformed themselves into Inuit People by creating an image of themselves dressed in animal furs.
