Karin Sprague Stone Carvers

In the rural landscape of North Scituate, Rhode Island, you’ll come across the bucolic stone carving shop of Karin Sprague. Karin has invited us in for a tour of her creative space, where we’ll get to meet the carvers that she collaborates with, Javier Alfonso and Rob Gil, to create lovely hand carved memorials and gravestones.

Féile na gCloch, the festival of stones, unfurls virtually in 2020 on the 18th and 19th September. On both days at 1pm you can follow the event on Facebook. Or  engage with the event whenever suits you via the Galway Heritage website.

Féile na gCloch, festival of stones, is an annual event on Inis Oírr that takes place every September. It brings together practitioners in stone walling, stone carving and letter carving from around the world to celebrate the heritage of the stones of the Aran Islands. In 2017, a new workshop was introduced, to reflect on the role that drawing and sketching plays in each of these traditions.
