Students come to appreciate the level of skill required of an Inuit artisan by shaping and polishing their own soapstone pendant to take home. Drawing from traditional and present-day objects, students learn about the different uses of soapstone in its practical and symbolic functions, its physical proprieties, and Moh’s hardness scale.
