What you can expect
You will meet me under an olive tree where I will have work tables, blocks of crystalline white marble of Naxos, and a sets of locally forged tools. I will share with you a brief history of marble arts, introduce different types of tools, and discuss the properties of marble and other stones. I will guide you thru the use and the traditional hand carving technique of each tool. You will practise with each tool on a block of marble for a period of time. When you have “mastered” each tool we will proceed to design and create a relief sculpture that you can then take home with you. It can be an Archaic Greek design from one of my templates or and idea that you have brought with you. I will work with you on the approach, process, and execution of the piece. It's a relaxed environment in the peaceful settings of our garden, fruit trees, and birds.
After three hours of immersing yourself with the stone you will have an understanding of traditional carving techniques and process of marble sculpture. Absolutely no experience is necessary even if you are someone who says, “I have no artistic talent”, the techniques and skills can be learned.
