WORKSHOP Cathedral Stone Carving with Jens Langlotz July 18–22 — $675 Brief demonstrations of techniques will prepare students for shaping their own pieces. The workshop covers stone types and properties, the use of different kinds of chisels for texturing, the fundamentals of letter design, both low and high relief carving, and rosette design. Students may choose to copy an architectural detail from Bryn Athyn Cathedral, such as one of the rosettes on the side of the building, or make an original piece of their own. No experience is necessary, and more advanced students are always welcome. As a master sculptor and carver with more than 20 years of experience, Jens Langlotz has worked with and mastered the major design building styles — from Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance, to American Colonial and American Victorian stone carving. He graduated from Fachschule Fur Steintechnik in Munich. He has apprenticed under master sculptor Hans Kupe, one of Germany’s leading stone restorers, and under Al Walters, master craftsman in stone, metal, and wood. He serves as head stone mason for both Bryn Athyn Cathedral and Glencairn Museum, and he has also done work on many other structures including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia City Hall, Reading Terminal, and buildings at Villanova University, Princeton University. 10 Workshops at Bryn Athyn
