Stone Carving Demo at Martha’s Vineyard Museum

Chris Pellettieri, traditional stone carver and founder of Pellettieri Stone Carvers’ Academy, will set up a workshop at MVM where visitors can watch him at work, ask questions, and even try their hand at using a few simple hand tools to chip away at a block of stone. Chris will be at the museum all day Saturday sharing the tradition and stories of his apprenticeship at the Cathedral of St. John The Divine in Manhattan in the late 1980s, as well as some of the commissions he has done and training programs he has run in the decades since.

The event is free with museum admission and happens on October 1, 2022 from 10am to 4pm
