For such a familiar quote, this was not at all easy to
look for. However, the results are here (after
consulting Samskrit-vidvAns and Google).
This quote is found in the viShNu-purANa. The complete
shloka is as follows.
tatkarma yan na bandhāya sā vidyā
yā vimuktaye |
vidyānyā śilpanaipuṇam ||

Incidentally, VishNu purANa seems to be the favorite
purANa of shrI shankara going by the number of times
he refers to it.
