Enzo Torceoletti, a stone sculptor originally from Italy taught UNF students the basics of sculpting in a workshop on Jan. 14.

The workshop went till 5 p.m. in the sculpture lab behind building 45. Torceoletti showed students techniques used to sculpt objects out of alabaster stone.

“He got this alabaster stone and I’m just going to make a wave. We have to make a mixed medium piece with it,” said Gillian Harper, sculpture junior.

Torceoletti has a show currently on exhibit at MOCA and will be up until Jan. 19.
