West Coast Training Center opens

The Vertical Artisans West Coast Training Center conducted its first workshop Sept. 27 through Oct. 5 at the Underground Concrete House in Lorane, Ore. The trainings focused on vertical carving techniques for indoors and out.

The house is a unique concrete dome home normally covered with earth. It is expected to be restored top to bottom with the help of decorative concrete. The next workshop, planned for mid-April, will include training on positive carving, epoxy molding, Celtic weave creation, stone facing, and staining, plus manufacturer demos.
