Each year, stone carvers from across Canada gather together to turn blacks of limestone into works of art. Using hand tools only, participants have 18 hours over three days to complete their pieces. At the end of the festival, each of the pieces is auctioned off and proceeds support Ottawa Innercity Ministries.
This year, the carvings raised a total of $9375!
Ottawa Innercity Ministries would like to thank Smith & Barber Atelier, for organizing the festival, all of the sponsors, the carvers, and the volunteers. We look forward to next year’s festival!
